More about Delft:

Delft is one of the most instantly recognisable forms of pottery, made in the Netherlands from the 16th Century to the current day. Traditionally, its characteristic white tin glaze is hand-decorated in metal oxides, the most famous being the glowing cobalt blue.

Today, authentic Delft tiles are still made with their familiar figurative themes, featuring traditional scenes and forms. However a new generation of Delft ceramicists has begun to introduce new glazes and abstract decorative finishes. Both are explored in the De Ferranti collection.
