Bisqueware decorated with the use of sponges, also known as spongeware, initially became popular in nineteenth century England. Eventually, applying glaze to ceramics fell out of favor because it was seen as cheaper pottery, but the style of spongeware has come back in vogue more recently!
Now, there are many types of sponges your customers might use to apply a design to a pottery piece, including natural silk sponges, seawool sponges, man-made poly sponges, and so forth. Each type of sponge offers unique benefits for the artist!
