Jasba – Glaze

Cortina – This is the decor for which Jasba is most known. This reduction glaze was mainly produced in black and white but can also be found in green and yellow. This decor was introduced by Jasba in 1956 and takes its name from the winter olympic games at Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy which took place in the same year. The white and black perhaps representing the snow on the Dolomite Alps. Items in this range are often found with Jopeko “Form and Farbe” labels. Jopeko copied this glaze but added three coloured dots to the surface to distinguish it (see here).
