Rishtan Triple Medallion Tile Panel

This striking 50-tile ceramic composition is distinguished by an intricate floral arrangement in a triple-medallion pattern that is suitable for both vertical and horizontal display. The elegant floral arabesques (repetitive patterns of interlacing foliage) of the primary field are checked by a wide border densely packed with colourful vegetation, forming a rich visual ensemble worthy of the finest Persian carpet.

The work of master ceramist Rustam Usmanov, one of the most celebrated contemporary innovators of Rishtan ceramics, this tile assembly 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-the oldest centre of such art in Central Asia-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.

The tiles are delivered unassembled, allowing for multiple creative ways to install them-as an eye-catching accent for a wall or a floor, embedded in a piece of furniture, or simply framed as wall art.
