Medieval Islamic Lustre Ware Pottery

Medieval lustre wares form a significant part of the Museum's Islamic pottery collection, currently being researched and recorded. A new technique called polynomial texture mapping is being used with selected objects. This enables viewing of an item on screen under varying light conditions in a way that previously was only possible by handling the object.
