Stoneware Plate From Jordan
$575.00

Availability: In stock

This beautifully handcrafted plate honors the Jordanian tradition of ceramic art while uniquely blending Arabic and modern aesthetics.

On a trip to Jordan I took the opportunity to visit the Silsal Ceramics Gallery and Studio in Amman.  When I walked into the Gallery, located in two 1950s villas, I was greeted by a stunning collection of bowls, plates, cups and vases.  My eyes moved from item to item noticing the distinctive mix of colors, designs and shapes.  I instantly knew I wanted these functional pieces of art in the VirtuArte collection.

Silsal Ceramics was started by two sisters, Reem and Rula Alattah, who wanted to help preserve the cultural tradition of ceramic art and utilize Jordanian talents, especially women artisans.  The designs and shapes are inspired by the historical designs of the Bronze age, Islamic and regional motifs, Mamluck period, as well as minimalist modern designs.  The passion for this traditional craft is complemented by Silsal's dedication to social responsibility as well as cultural enrichment and environmental consciousness.  Silsal's exquisite pieces of art have been given as State gifts by the King and Queen of Jordan, including a plate similar to this one as a wedding gift to Prince Charles and Camilla.
