Floral Rosette Rishtan Ceramic Bowl

The main surface (the well) of this ceramic bowl is adorned by a colourful floral rosette, in which geometric and floral elements are combined in a bold and expressive design. A rich pattern of intertwined foliage occupies the inner lip of the bowl, while the outer surface is decorated with cheerful bunches of daisies.

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.
