Description
Made according to the principles of the Moly-Sabata colony, the ceramics are from local materials and in the local style of country or peasant pottery. The shapes are simple, the glazes are the same as country glazes of the region and the ceramics are very low-fired. The jug is decorated with an abstracted landscape of hills, and the river with barges on it.
