Bouquet Design Rishtan Ceramic Bowl

The main surface (the well) of this lively ceramic plate is painted with an octagonal floral rosette, in which geometric and floral elements are combined in a captivating design. The central motif is surrounded by a thick arrangement of flowers, almost as if it were nestled within a bouquet of fresh flowers. The outer surface is also adorned with repeating flower decorations.

The work of master ceramist Rustam Usmanov, one of the most celebrated contemporary innovators of Rishtan ceramics, this ceramic bowl is an exceptional example of a long-established Central Asian tradition of handmade earthenware. Rishtan is a village on the branch of the Silk Route that passed through Uzbekistan's Fergana Valley. The ceramic arts were first practised in Rishtan in the 14th century, borrowing inspiration and know-how from both the blue-and-white cobalt porcelain of China and the deep blue and turquoise tiles of Andalusia.
