About Delft Pottery

During the early 17th century, the Dutch East India Company brought back many exotic wares and spices from China. The introduction of Chinese porcelain (a highly refined kind of ceramic pottery) inspired local artisans to re-create the form. For whatever reason, these artisans concentrated in the Delft region of the Netherlands. These Delft potters developed plates, tiles, jars, and dinnerware.Delftware, as these pieces came to be known, was engineered in a relatively straightforward way. The artisans started with home-baked white clay (which, after 1884, the Dutch imported from other countries). Next, they glazed the pottery with something called 'tin glaze.' Styles of tin glaze included faience and maiolica. After this stage, artisans applied a kind of metal oxide to decorate.Finally, the Delftware got painted over with blue and white decorations, which typically featured Dutch landmarks like fishing boats and windmills. Most Delftware created from the 1700s and 1800s was done in blue and white. However, some Delftware was made of polychrome. These ceramic products became famous throughout the world--classic Delft pottery can sell for thousands of dollars in mint condition.Of the myriad artisans who practiced Delft making in the 1700s, only one remains currently in business. De Konkinklijke Porceleyne Fles, which opened its doors for business 1653, continues to produce high-quality wares. British Airways recently adopted a Delft design for their tail fins. All told, this Delft tailfin was used on 17 different airplanes.
