al-qalam:

‘Probably White is a fusion of artisanal ceramics with contemporary approach. The developed line Siramiki represents the merge of hand crafted ceramics with graceful Arabic calligraphy.” Calligraphy by Vasily Kassab, a porcelain master Reia-performance.

purplefigtree:

Beaker decorated with scenes from the Shahnameh
Kashan, Iran, late 12th century.
This celebrated beaker is the only known object from the Islamic world that is illustrated with a complete narrative cycle from the Shahnama, the Persian Book of Kings. Organized in horizontal bands, the small but highly detailed images recount the adventures of Bizhan and Manizha, beginning with Firdawsi’s beloved telling the story. The climax in the narrative appears in the lower register and depicts Rustam rescuing Bizhan from the pit where he has been imprisoned by the Turanian king Afrasiyab, Manizha’s evil father. This pictorial cycle predates any other depictions of the Bizhan and Manizha romance by some one hundred years.

junktorium:

Earthenware bowl, decorated with colored slips over an aubergine-colored ground under a transparent glaze 
Central Asia, Samarkand, or Afghanistan; 10th century

This bowl and a number of related ones differ from the usual Samanid pottery by having both an aubergine-colored ground and quite motley, detailed, and imaginative depictions of animals, birds, and human figures. They are virtually unknown from excavations in Nishapur and must have been made in a different Samanid center. The magnificent lion looks almost like a mythical beast, with winged paws, curious ornamental bands in various places on its body, and a forked tail that ends in palmettes. Another distinctive feature is the asymmetrical, dotted areas that surround the main motif.
