Why this is a
Masterpiece

The clayware of Uzbekistan potters could rival the best specimens from artisan centres of the Near and Middle East. An elegant painting of this bowl shows the great skill and artistic style of the potter.

History of the Object
The potters of ancient ceramic centers of Ferghana, Khwarazm, Samarqand and Bokhara were creating the glazed ware in accordance with the local traditions. The devotion of local populace to clayware is supposedly linked with a specific attitude towards the work material it was made of. Clay was considered ritually clean, as man was created out of it, according to the Qur’an.The clayware dishes were also used to protect the house from evil spirits.
