|Type Name:||CUERDA SECA|
Paste is soft, cream-colored and compact.
Geometric areas of colored tin enamel set apart by bands of unglazed pottery.
The enamel areas include green, melado, blue, white and brown colors.
|Comments:||The enamel areas are separated by greased lines before firing. The greased areas burn away during firing, leaving the paste exposed. Cuerda Seca is clearly of the Moorish tradition.|
