BY POPULAR DEMAND | LIKE LIGHT FROM THE SUN: Tiles and Ceramics in the Islamic World with Susan Scollay

Thursday 19 Aug 2010, 7:15 PM – 8:45 PM

Highly decorative and sumptuously coloured tilework was the preferred means of embellishing Islamic architecture - both inside and out.  Its production was closely linked to ceramic vessels and tableware, and made use of designs similar to those used by metal workers, book illustrators and weavers.

Susan Scollay is an internationally recognised specialist in textiles and carpets and Islamic art and culture. She is contributing editor of HALI, the London-based journal of carpet, textile and Islamic art, and is currently completing a PhD at La Trobe University, Melbourne
