HOW TO BECOME A FRIEND OF THE WORLD SOCIETY?

The painstaking work of craftsmen when decorating dishes‌‌

Ways of decorating ceramics also varied.

Potters used brush painting, engraving, and stamping. In patterns mostly vegetal and geometric motifs can be found. Sometimes patterns depicted household items, such as knives and kumgans. The simplest geometric motifs were even and broken lines, which usually formed separate border strips. Wavy or zigzag lines (ilon izi) went mainly along the edge and neck of vessels. Among various vegetal motifs, images of various types of flowers and fruits were the commonest.
