In this period the surface of the pot was completely covered with a network of fine patterns in which circles and arcs predominate.

During the Geometric and Orientalizing periods ( B.C.E.), painters employed compasses to trace perfect circles and used silhouette and outline methods to delineate shapes and figures (below).
