Hazy Blue Rishtan Ceramic Bowl

The main surface (the well) of this shallow ceramic bowl is adorned by a delicate floral rosette, in which geometric and floral elements are combined in a charming design. An inner border of large, hazy blue snowflake motifs, and an outer border of simple, scrolling foliage surround this main element.

The work of master ceramist Rustam Usmanov, one of the most celebrated contemporary innovators of Rishtan ceramics, this ceramic plate 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.
