Rosette and Arches Rishtan Ceramic Plate

The main surface (the well) of this delightful small ceramic plate is adorned by an intricate floral rosette, in which geometric and floral elements are combined in a captivating design. The complexity of this central motif contrasts with the simple design of repeating arches that decorates the inner lip of the plate.

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.
