Teacher's Guide - 15th Century Spain/New World - Columbus Basin Details

This reusable guide covers 1484-1504 and such key people as Christopher Columbus. It is to be used in conjunction with the Columbus Basin (EDU 100). Spanish lusterware comes from a pottery style that developed in the Middle East. Since the 8th century, Arab occupation of Spain brought new influences of Islamic culture and art. Pottery was made by adding tin oxide to lead glaze, creating an opaque white surface. It covered the clay and could be used like a painter’s canvas. In Spain, this type of pottery was known as “mayólica.” Some of the vessels display a single large animal or bird across the surface. The appearance of heraldic shields is also common. Motifs include stars, dots, plants, and other patterns in cobalt blue and gold. Muslim occupation of Spain ended in 1492 when Isabella and Ferdinand captured the last Arab city in Spain. That was also the year Christopher Columbus sailed to the New World. During the next century, the Spanish Empire included territories around the globe.
