Although ceramics in Palestine date far back to the Neolithic period, evidenced in the archeological sites in Jericho, it was the Armenian artisans in Jerusalem that popularized the art of pottery-making during the turn of the century.  Loved by both tourists and locals, the Palestinian pottery is renowned for vivid colors and arabesque motifs, which are influenced by Armenian, Ottoman, Persian, and Syrian arts.
