Context: The "Rhodian" phase is the most recognizable form of Iznik ware, for it was produced for almost half a century (late 1550s until the decline of the industry soon after 1600). It is characterized by a brilliant and expanded color range: black, light anddark blue, turquoise, bright green, and most importantly, red---the most difficult color to achieve in ceramics. The bright red in Iznik ceramics is produced by the use of 'Armenian bole,' a clay slip rich in iron.
