We’re celebrating Americana! But this pattern is great for any time of year.
“American Flourish” is a fast flowing pattern full of the swirls and brushstrokes. It’s reminiscent of the hand painted crocks and jugs of historic American Stoneware.
American Stoneware is a specific type of salt glazed pottery that was popular during the late 18th– early 19th centuries. It has been described as the “tupperware” of the era. The familiar white stoneware crockery was painted with designs of cobalt blue before firing. Eagles, stylized florals, houses, even Lincoln and his wife were painted in a folk art style on the pots before firing.
