A large, handbuilt terracotta bowl, based on the Spanish lebrillo, a generous serving bowl with a wide elevation, traditionally hung from walls in groups to great visual effect. The surface decoration is a reworking of Staffordshire agateware, a technique popular in the mid 18th century, which uses coloured slips and glazes in soft blushy pinks and mossy greens, no two bowls are the same. 1690 Lebrillos are made with a clay fitting at the base from which to hang these substantial works and are threaded with unbleached herringbone cotton tape, ready to suspend. Around the rim of the bowl is written, ‘Nosotros, los sin pulir’, We, the unpolished.
