This paper attempts to describe all the varieties of ceramics produced during the period of the Nasrid dynasty (1232-1492) of Spain. The subject is introduced by brief histories of pre-Nasrid and Nasrid Muslim Spain. These chapters are followed by a survey of the ceramics, and their shapes and decorative motifs, made during the Caliphal, Taifas and Almoravid-Almohad periods. Nasrid ceramics are divided into four major categories: unglazed, slip-painted and monochrome-glazed wares; cuerda seca and verdugones ware; blue and white ware and lusterware. The development of forms, decorative motifs and techniques is considered as are their possible origins and sources.
