Turkish Empire - A. Ortelius 1579

Islamic pottery – the fine ceramics made in the lands of Islam, is an important part of the Islamic legacy, history and tradition. From the Arab world and Turkey through Iran (Persia) and into central Asia, Islamic potters have played a crucial role in the development of these ceramics cultures contributing in making the ceramics of Islamic lands among the finest, competing in technical and aesthetic excellence with Chinese porcelain.
Potters of the Fatimid Dynasty in Iran, the ceramic center of Kashan, the development of glazed ceramics and the arrival of the lustreware technique, masterpieces as the Minai ceramics from Iran or the most recent Iznik or Kutahya ceramics, compile a history that last more than 1.000 years. What we could say? Just fascinating!
