    • 1286 Words
    • 6 Pages

    Hacienda Plains Archaeological Problem Kaitlyn Barton, Jessica Elmore, Kayla Seifert The Hacienda Plain is located on the Pacific coast of Central America. Its climate is tropical with an annual rainfall of about 90 inches, the vegetation being dense jungle. Nanosec Indians are the inhabitants of the plain and live mostly in small, scattered farming communities. The Zatopec Indians live in the Zatopec Highlands to the east of the plain. The highlands rise steeply to 3,000 feet, have an annual rainfall of 35 inches and are mostly open grassland. There are modern cities that can be found in the highlands. The Zatopecs that inhabit these cities have been integrated into the industrial economy. At one time, thousands of years ago, the Nanosec and Zatopec peoples spoke the same language and likely constituted a single group. However, some unknown factor separated them and as a result, the Nanosec settled in the Hacienda Plain, while the Zatopec settled in the Zatopec Highlands.

They settled by rivers for a close water resource as well as a means for transportation and trade. The occupants of these sites also chose to settle by rivers because the soils by the river were much easier for them to use…

    • 2 Pages

    Parr Motherhood In 1924, and with a degree of ill grace, Vyse went around saying that he was too busy even to contemplate his exhibiting at the Royal Academy. Furthermore, it was his opinion that Parr was fortunate the RA committee had considered his work. He disregarded the fact that Parr’s stoneware group Motherhood (RA1548), was accepted for exhibition (Fig. 61). The reason for Vyse’sw jealousy was that the exhibit in question is possibly the liveliest figure produced by Parr, and unlike…

    The use of stoneware to contain the ice kept the water from racing to match room temperature. The stoneware slowed the experiment enough to completely monitor the effects of each independent variable. The sugar did significantly change the physical form of the ice early during the experiment. While this did not as drastic or last as long as the ice, it did show that sugar does have some deicing properties. Additionally, the last observation noted is that the length of time that the solution…

    As mentioned before, there were two types of inscriptions on the Yixing stoneware teapot. One type was the individual seals placed on the base of the teapots, and the other one was the customized inscriptions on the bodies of the teapots. This new practice of inscribing, on one hand, was significantly influenced by the imperial reign marking tradition; on the other hand, it was the consequence of the mutual respect between skillful and creative Yixing artisans and their patrons, the…

The raku body is typically stoneware with at least 20 percent grog, adding porosity. The expansion due to the heat and the contraction of cooling happens during the rapid firing of the raku process, are part of thermal expansion.
