NOTES
Incising and sponging the body of this vase while the clay was still damp produced the low-relief design of plant forms. The forms were accentuated with blue-green and cobalt blue pigments under a clear, glossy glaze. The simplified design was executed by Desiree Roman, one of the many professional decorators who studied at Newcomb College and later worked at the Newcomb Pottery.
