High earthenware vase designed by W.C. Brouwer in 1904. The yellow decoration was applied with the sgraffito technique. With this technique an extra engobe layer is applied from which the decor is scratched and the underlying layer becomes visible. Willem Coenraad Brouwer (1877-1933) was a Dutch ceramist and sculptor who is counted among the Dutch Art Nouveau and the Amsterdam School. He collaborated with architects such as Berlage, Dudok, Oud and Wils for whom he designed architectural ceramics that they used in their designs. Brouwer started his career at the studio for book decoration and letter design of his brother-in-law Loebèr. He then moved to Gouda where he started making pottery at Goedewagen. In 1901 he started his own earthenware factory called 'Fabriek van Brouwer's Aardewerk' in Leiderdorp.
