Sixteenth-century ornament prints served as inspiration for pottery decorators long into the 18th century. Pouncing, a technique of piercing clay with small dots and rubbing charcoal into the holes to transfer a design, was used in decorations based on print engravings. The fantastic animals and mythological figures in Delaune’s grotesque designs have parallels in the monochrome blue faience nearby.
