Chapter Summary

In the late fifteenth  century, following the installation of Ottoman power in Istanbul, Iznik, then a small village with four hundred homes, became a major luxury tableware manufacturing center in painted earthenware. Archaeologists have long believed that the choice of location presiding over the installation of a pottery workshop was primarily dictated by the proximity of raw materials needed for the manufacture of ceramics, that is to say, the land, water and wood.  The comparative study of Byzantine productions of Nicaea suggests that the period of activity of the workshops was between the tenth and the end of the thirteenth century. his ex nihilo creation of pottery under Imperial control in this secluded spot at the end of the fifteenth century is certainly to be linked with the taking of Constantinople. The original text of the chapter is in French.
