Pottery

Pottery is the material from which the potteryware is made, of which major types include earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. The place where such wares are made is also called a pottery (plural "potteries").

Because of its durability, the primary means by which archaeologists determine dates, ethnic affinities, and trade connections is through a study of pottery. Earthenware vessels were used in antiquity for storing, cooking and serving food, as well as for containers for shipping a variety of liquid commodities.

Although pottery in the region date far back to the Neolithic period, evidenced in the archeological sites in Jericho, it was the Armenian artisans in Jerusalem that popularized the art of pottery-making during the turn of the century. Loved by both tourists and locals, the pottery is renowned for vivid colors and arabesque motifs, which are influenced by Armenian, Ottoman, Persian, and Syrian arts.
