  3. Abby Church, Meraux England 1249 • Tile-making was influenced by movement along major land and sea trade routes, which encouraged the exchange of ideas and materials. • Wars, political unrest, and religion all played their part in the blending of technologies, aesthetics, and cultural influences in ceramic tile-making.

  4. Chinese Porcelains were introduced into Persia and the West with far-reaching effects. Tang Dynasty (A.D. 618-906) • In order to imitate Chinese Porcelains, the Persians first developed a white tin- based glaze to mask the red clay, and then used a technique of applying oxides to produce brightly colored intricate designs. • This decorating technique spread throughout Europe, Africa and later into the Americas. This process is now called Majolica, Faïence or Delftware depending on the region where it is made. Yuan Dynasty 14 A.D. France, 1542 Persian Tile, 1266-67 Minai Type Bowl 1187 A.D. Damascus 1550-97
