The Seljuq era was distinguished by its extensive use of lustre techniques – painting with metal oxides then fired in a reduction kiln – to produce fine ceramics. The high quality achieved by the ceramic painters is borne out by countless bowls, bottles and vases decorated with thin brushstrokes that outline geometric shapes, floral patterns and human figures.
