Blue Tehran Map
Handbuilt Ceramic Vessel
The Qajar dynasty chose Tehran as the capital of Iran in 1786. A blue modern map of the city on red earthenware gives the sense the map is antiquated as the edges echo those of an ancient past.
10 inches in height and 9 1/2 inches wide
The graphic vessel is handcrafted and kiln fired three times.
