Through the large number of ceramic pieces on display in this room is shown the varied typology of shapes and the extraordinary plastic richness of the grancanaria pottery production, defined by a painted decoration that combines multiple geometric elements, which differentiates it from the rest of the islands of the archipelago.

Both the decoration and morphology of these pieces would be largely linked to the uses to which they were intended. In this way, containers of important dimensions must have been used for the storage of various products such as cereals, others would be used for the processing of food and others for ritual or magical-religious purposes.

Finally, in the room a set of ceramic objects of small dimensions is exhibited, which have been given various interpretations: small containers, ritual objects, possible toys, etc.
