Floral Windmill Rishtan Ceramic Bowl

A dynamic floral pattern, reminiscent of a giant windmill tilting in the breeze, dominates the design of this elegant ceramic bowl. A simple, repeating pattern of petal-like arches adorns the inner lip of the bowl, while more elaborate flowers and foliage occupy the outer surface.

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.
