Our beautiful lusterware bowl is based on a medieval bowl in The Met collection, which was made in Syria in the late 12th to early 13th century. It represents an innovation that coincided with the Syrian adoption of stonepaste; to create the design, the ceramicist painted directly on the white stonepaste body with three pigmentschromium black, cobalt blue, and red boleover which he applied a transparent alkali glaze.

The interior design consists of a band of pseudo inscriptions around the rim, surrounding a framework of radial panels with alternating designs. Recent analysis suggests the main production center for this ware was Damascus.

Handmade exclusively for The Met in the workshop of Arturo Mora Benavent, an award-winning, fourth-generation ceramicist in Manises, Valencia, Spain.
