Dish with a stonepaste body; Iran, possibly Tabriz, 1500-1550.
"The location of the workshop where this dish was produced has not been identified, though Tabriz or possibly [an] Ottoman [city] have been suggested. It is part of a group of dishes, with decoration derived from Chinese prototypes. The designs have affinities with the Tabriz group, but the petrofabric is similar to Iznik bodies. All are decorated with the same floral scroll on the underside. It is possibly the work of Tabriz-trained potters who had moved to Turkey, or Ottoman potters imitating a fashionable Persian style."

"Architecture represents a great deal more than a need for shelter. At its best architecture engages with profound human issues. Even mundane and seemingly unimportant structures can be lifted by sensitive and intelligent design. My work as a photographer is predicated on a desire to broaden the conversation about our built environment, to be an advocate for design that elevates, to help construct an argument where good design isn’t an occasional, rare and special thing but an everyday, routine and expected event. Some of the most rewarding moments in my life have been spent in the company of the occupants of a new building, sharing in the pleasure and optimism that is to be found when a special place has been delivered."
