The pottery in Seville was the main crafts of the city from the Islamic period. The Moorish tiled geometric shapes from XIV century gave way to the tile arista in the XVI based on floral designs. Here it was necessary to make a kind of relief to separate colors.
But it was the Italian Niculoso Pisano who brought in Seville the Renaissance technique of painting on flat tile. This enabled us to expand to many more designs: humans, animals, mythological … a good disciple of this latter style was our artist in the Alcazar Cristobal de Augusta.
