Hello sweet friends!
My mother has Bible readings with her friends and they take turns at their houses every month, so here are some pics I took from her last gathering, specially because the blue and white dishes were made at our former ceramic company.
For the friends that don't know; we used to own a ceramic factory up to six years ago and Alejandro has worked for more than 30 years in the ceramic and pottery business.
Alejandro was very skilled, actually, he is the one who knew about the pottery or ceramic production and I, in later years designed the dishes, inspired in the indigenous people of Ecuador's beautiful and colorful embroidered apparel.
The big pieces were reproduced from the original Spanish colonial design forms by hand, by a potter's wheel and an artist decorated them reproducing the flowers and plants mostly in the embroidery blouses and skirts.
I gifted mother these dishes years ago, which I'm sharing here.
Hope you like this design in a classic blue and white.

|The jam bowl has a rabbit in the lid. |
The original Spanish designs had in all the lids different kind of farm animals.
|I made her favorite 'Carrot Cake with Cream cheese frosting and Coconut.'|
Here you can see another lid with a duck on the sugar bowl.
|I think the 'Zuleta' style is a very elegant pattern and it makes it a classic been in blue and white.|
I'm glad mother chose this one!
Here you have it, another design from our past ceramic company.
I might add that I had designed 14-15 patterns of dishes and we were very successful with them, since we used to export them to Texas, to England, Italy, France, some countries here in South America, etc.
Ok, you might ask why then we sold it and it was cause Alejandro was tired, nothing more to add!
Thank you for your sweet and kind visit, you always make my day!
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
