In the 11th century, new types of sgraffito wares were developed in the northern and north-western parts of Iran, neighboring regions such as Azerbaijan and Georgia.
The designs on these new wares often were influenced by Zoroastrian motifs and by metalwork from the preceding Sasanian Empire in Iran. In addition, they showed a more controlled use of colour and of incised decoration.
The three main sgraffito types made by these new pottery centers in north-western Iran were firstly "plain incised ware" from the Amol region in Mazanderan with straightforward inscribed designs (often fantastic animals or birds, as well as scrollwork and epigraphic designs) beneath a transparent yellow glaze.
Secondly, "Garrus Ware" which is named after a region in north-western Iran and has decoration of floral patterns, animals, and human figures carved through a thick white slip.
Finally, ‘Aghkand Ware’ with polychrome designs of birds, hares and other animals in green, brown and yellow outlined with incised lines, a technique derived from metal-working.
In the years that followed, a range of sgraffito wares with a similar aesthetic to the three types of pottery mentioned above began to be manufactured in Syria, Egypt, and the Byzantine World, bringing an ancient practice to more western locales.
Today these pieces are stored and showcased in numerous museums and auction houses across the world.
