The Spoon

This style is called the Spoon technique and originates from Cortegana, in Huelva, Andalusia. It was born in the 1930s and consists of a spoon with the tip of the bowl cut, the potter uses one spoon for each color and spins the plate while pouring the color, creating amazing spiro graphic type designs.

In a village with 20 potters by the late XIX century, there is only Enrique left, he learned from the last Cortegana potter. He withstands the modernization of crafts and still works with a small pottery wheel and a minimal oven, his collections are small in number, soon when he retires, they will be a piece of museum of a craft that barely reached 100 years.
