In this study, based on the data through related literature and visual data, three different kinds of Ceramic Techniques of Seljuq’s and their historical developments are examined. Determination of “independent invention” which is often repeated in literature regarding “Enameled ware” (overglaze polychrome-painted ware) and “Underglaze-paint” ornamentation techniques studied through a different viewpoint was examined and correctness of aspects that may rise are argued. In this study where “Underglaze-paint” technique, “Enameled wares” and “Seljuk Whitewares” are used as research objects; it aims to enlighten primarily the formation of the product by mentioned techniques and its historical development. For this aim, relevant techniques are put into the general frame of Islamic Art and examined in such a form that provides a holistic perspective. Later on the study, measurement of the artistic value of solid production and criteria in this measurement are problematized. Accordingly, findings gained through new assessment techniques regarding the evaluation of historical productions are applied to Seljuk ceramic techniques -which is the object of the research- and new classification elements and titles are proposed.
