"Developed in 1969, the Aegean range featured 5 distinct decorative techniques – silhouette, sgrafitto, mosaic, flow line and carved. The various techniques were both inventive and technically accomplished with superb use of modern glazes and production methods . Initially developed by Leslie Elsden as a replacement for the Delphis range it features abstract, landscape, marine and animal subjects in a darker palette over a range of 22 standard shapes. It was never as popular as Delphis but ran as a complementary rather than a replacement range until 1980." From: https://c20ceramics.net
