An amazing resource for anyone interested in ancient Greek pottery has been made available through Getty publications for free. Toby Schreiber’s 1999 book Athenian Vase Construction: a Potter’s Analysis.
The PDf download (183 MB) gives you the full 312 page book and is a really great introduction into the world of Athenian Vases specifically, but Ancient Greek Vases generally. Unlike many other modern books about Greek pottery, this volume doesn’t focus on the iconography represented on the pottery but rather the manufacture of the vessels.
