ISLAMIC ART : IZNIK

Cet article se compose de 3 pages.
1 2 3
Reminiscent of the blue and white pieces from China and the porcelains of the Medicis, Iznik ceramic pieces almost resembled porcelains thanks to their translucid glazing.

Iznik pieces with their Arabesque and flower decors expressed the enchantment of Turkey after Soliman the Magnificent had set up a manufacture in 1525 the town of Iznik, formerly Nicaea, which had been the Byzantine capital.

Ceramic pieces were already produced in Iznik at the end of the 15th Century and potters had already mastered techniques to produce large plates with the use of a siliceous paste containing a small proportion of clay that enabled them to create works which looked like porcelains.
