At the turn of the 20th century, when the tiles at the Dome of the Rock required replacing, a Turkish family of ceramic specialists was brought to Jerusalem to take on this daunting task. While doing the work, the family established a business in Palestine that has thrived ever since. Today there are many styles of Palestinian pottery and ceramics-all of them artistic and intricate in design. Though Palestine is known for its colorful tiles and plates, which are particularly beautiful, everything from vases to hanging ornaments can be found.


Jerusalem Pottery is known for its blue and turquoise bright colors and floral and leaf paints. Floral pottery now comes in all kitchenware and in more colors keeping the floral design as a tradition.


Armenian Pottery: The Family of Jerusalem has been producing exclusive hand painted ceramic tiles and pottery since 1922. This makes it one of the oldest-if not the oldest- business in existence in Jerusalem. Designs are different but unique to the armenian pottery in Jerusalem.
