It’s one of the ancient Iranian handicrafts that refers to all the products that are made of ‘primary soils’ and have been kilned and glazed. Primary soils are those that have greater purity and less stickiness owing to the fact that they have not been transformed ever since their coming into existence and have remained fixed. They also need 1200 degrees centigrade of heat to be baked. White soils and stoneware soils are cases in point. At present the art of ceramic making is popular in Iran in forms of making vases, plates with various glazes-carved and painted.
