Rishtan Arabesque Vase Panel

A 50-piece Rishtan ceramic tile panel hand worked at the studio of master ceramist, Rustam Usmanov. Fired at 900°C in a traditional kiln, this exquisite panel displays generational mastery over material, technique, colour and brush. Left deliberately unframed, the buyer is free to inlay it into furniture, recess it in plaster or interpret it in other creative formats.

Rishtan is a small village located on the ancient silk route that passed through the Fergana valley of Uzbekistan. It is the oldest centre of ceramic art in Central Asia. This is where the 'blue legend', Rishtan ceramics is made. Unmistakable in colour and craft, this unique hand painted, glazed ceramic is entirely made from local raw materials. Its most characteristic colouring is a turquoise, dark blue and brown scheme on a milky-white background. Ishkor glaze, made from ashes, gives Rishtan earthenware its beautiful, soft shine.
