I really do LOVE pottery

10 Oct

I must get this from my mom, but I’ve always loved beautiful pottery. I especially love the tile, vases, bowls and plates that make up the Carranza collection at Santa Cruz Museum. All of the pieces are from different areas of Spain but share a very Mediterranean look (in my opinion, but I’m no expert). The white backgrounds are painted mostly with blue and yellow and sometimes green or with metallic bronze and silver colors. Some of the pieces are decorated with various designs and others show depictions of legends and history. The depictions were my favorite. I took my time walking through this exhibit, looked at everything and took lots of pictures.

    Toledo sounds and looks like such a great, historic city. Thanks for sharing it. And you know I love the pottery too. I must say I was a little surprised that our skype phone call wasn’t your favorite thing you did this weekend with visiting Toledo as a close second. : )
