 Pottery: Baked-Clay Forming

The history of the art of pottery in Iran goes back to ancient times around 4000 B.C. when agriculture came into existence and cultivation started on Iran plateau by primitive races of this land, and people made utensils of baked clay to meet their needs. Before glass manufacturing became widespread, most dishes used by humans, such as pitchers and bowls were pottery. Nowadays, pottery has turned into one of the most popular traditional handicrafts of Iran. The best performing soil for this Persian handicraft is clay, which is of a large amount of Iron red.
