These hand painted plates are from Rishtan, one of the oldest centres of ceramic production in Uzbekistan.
Crafted by Rustam Usmanov, his son Damir, and their apprentices in their home workshop, these plates are made from unique red Rishtan clay, and are painted with the ishkor glaze giving the pottery a distinctive blue-green colour.
Rustam Usmanov is a member of the Art Academy of Uzbekistan, and a winner of the UNESCO Award of Excellence for his blue Rishtan ceramic pottery.
All plates are one-off designs, but are painted using the same colours. Please be aware of this when ordering.
The plates will be delivered wrapped in recycled tissue paper in a recycled cardboard box.
