4) Research tools

A. Chart for measuring of rim/base diameter and percent represented:

For his work with PEPP J. Ikäheimo produced a diameter gauge with rays at 1 percent intervals that can be used to establish the diameter of a vessel rim or base sherd and calculate the percent of the rim/base that it represents.

Diameter and percent gauge

 

B. Adobe Illustrator routine for the production of finished digital drawings from pottery profile drawings.

For his work with PEPP J. Ikäheimo produced a routine in Adobe Illustrator that permits the production of a tracing of a scan of a pottery profile drawing that can be used to work up a finished digital drawing.  J.T. Peña subsequently wrote up a set of instructions that describe how to employ this routine to produce finished drawings.
