Overview of Spongeware Pottery (1830's-1900's)

Spongeware pottery is a distinctive style that features shapes formed by dipping a sea sponge into coloured slip and dabbing it onto a white base. The resulting vessel is then glazed and fired to create a unique, textured appearance. The sponge can be applied all over the piece or cut into various shapes such as diamonds, concentric circles, spirals, stars, zig-zags, swirls, or naturalistic forms like flowers, leaves, and shamrocks. These patterns are then repeated around the vessel to create a visually striking design.
