Islamic pottery is one of the hidden treasures of world ceramics. However, its full breadth and diversity has often been overshadowed by the legacy of China and Europe although Islamic pottery cedes nothing to these great traditions in beauty or technical inventiveness. This work presents the history of the subject. It is a catalogue of the al-Sabah Collection in Kuwait – one of the few truly great collections in private hands, and one that is well able to portray the unfolding story of Islamic pottery over its thousand-year history. Here are descriptions of over 400 individual objects grouped in geographical and chronological sequence, accompanied by over 900 colour photographs. Essays trace the history of Islamic ceramics from the eighth century AD to the heights of refinement in sixteenth and seventeenth century Turkey and Iran, to the destructive impact of nineteenth century industrialization.
