Early pottery dates back to ancient times and the beautiful ceramics dating back to the
Neolithic era, time when a remarkable civilization emerged on the territory of Romania,
stand as a proof.
Craftsmanship designed almost exclusively to men (women eventually giving their
helping hand with decorations), pottery implies force, skill, as well as special knowledge.
Pottery is primarily influenced by domestic household needs. Ceramics has been and is
still used for decoration purposes in building activities (for example in stove plates) or tied to
certain formal procedures.
The country household contains a wide variety of clay pots – pots, jar vessel, mugs, cups,
bowls, platters, milk pots, high volume pots in which food was cooked for religious holidays,
flower pots, stew and frying pans, cake trays, candlesticks, statuettes, flutes, toys, etc.
In country cuisine, the black as well as the red non-glazed ceramics are used for
utilitarian purposes, to prepare, preserve or ship food, (pots, glove pottery, mugs, bowls, jars,
milk pots, etc).
Enameled pots, abundantly garnished and lively colored, used for their practicality, are
very often also used in interior decorations.
Hanging on the beam or on the walls, ceramic items combined with furniture, painted
fabric and icons will result in a remarkable decoration specific to a country household.
