March 26 – Kona Delft- Seize the Clay

Today’s color of the day is Delft. Growing up I had an obsession with Delft pottery. I happened to pick up two small plates at an estate sale without really knowing what they were. I just liked the color and the patterns. I now know a little bit more about the history of the world-famous pottery that has been produced in the city of Delft since the 17th century. Delft is a canal-ringed city in the western Netherlands which was granted its city charter on April 15, 1246. Delft Blue was not made from the typical porcelain clay, but from clay that was coated with glaze after it was fired. At its peak there were 33 factories in Delft, but only one remains today.

I’m not sure what ever happened to my two small plates. I have several boxes that have moved with me over the years that I have never unpacked. Maybe one day I will get lucky and I will and find them.
