Background

On sponge decorated wares the color was applied by dipping a sponge into the colored glaze and then applying the sponge to the ware to be decorated. Wares with sponged decoration have a long history in European pottery which began with delftwares. Sponged decoration on Delft was commonly used to represent foliage, such as the tops of the trees on our jar.
