CYPRIOT MEDIEVAL GLAZED POTTERY
CYPRUS, 2013, 41'
  by AGON - Thursday, 14 July 2016

In Medieval Cyprus, at the beginning of the 13th century, when the island was already under the Frankish Lusignan dynasty, a new kind of pottery appears, characterized by a distinctive and attractive decoration with predominant colours being brown, yellow and green. The characteristic bright glazed surface of the pottery gave it its name.
The main medieval glazed pottery workshops known to us today are those of Paphos, Engomi and Lapithos. The study of contemporary glazed pottery, particularly in Lapitos, could help us to understand the techniques used in making the medieval glazed pots of Cyprus.
