Too kind. We shall see how it goes... ;-|

This is only preliminary, and somehow too "contemporary" in some of its 
aspects, but it is a start, and I am learning a lot about how to do 
pigment_patterns right for instance.

Well... I have no idea as he refuses to communicate with me... ;-)

Mike, Kenneth, thanks indeed.

I have taken the opportunity to explore more in details the directives 
from Clipka to correctly use the finish code in version 3.7 and higher. 
Very enlightening indeed. I shall come back on this later on.

Two different views of the vase with the panels now finished. The 
decoration is a faithful copy of the originals.

This is a reproduction of the restored frieze I used as example for my 
own "painting".

I like the addition of the cracks and dents to start making it look aged.  Was
this done in your modeling system, or added in in POV afterwards?

Thanks Chris. The cracks/dents were added in POV as a normal to the 
reddish slipware. The decorations have a different normal but that is 
still not final. In a final stage I might add the normals to the model 
itself; Poseray is very well-suited for that.

Not yet satisfied but progress was made.

All work was done on the textures of the vase. Incidentally, I improved 
the set-up of my studio environment.

A very good vase, perhaps the black lines are a bit too bright, they 
look freshly painted.
Btw, i like the pattern of your table cloth...

Thank you Paolo. Take 2 will take care of that I hope :-)

The table cloth is a basic cylinder with a texture using a black/white 
image_map of the POV-Ray logo as a pigment_pattern.
