Armenian pottery, also called Armenian ceramics, is a type of hand painted pottery and ceramic tile making, founded in Jerusalem in the early twentieth century.

Armenian ceramics actually has its roots in Ottoman Turkey, but this unique art form was established in Jerusalem when in 1919 the British government invited a group of Armenian craftsmen who lived in Kutahya, Turkey, to renovate the exterior ceramic tiles of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. The craftsmen came to Jerusalem , set up a workshop and planned the design and renovation of the tiles. For various reasons, the project never actually happened, but the craftsmen chose not to return to Turkey, and they stayed in Jerusalem where they produced their hand painted tiles and pottery.

What are the characteristics of Armenian pottery and tile? Aside from the repertoire of traditional designs, such as peacocks and floral designs which the families brought with them, new designs were added and adapted from local culture. They are all hand painted with deep cobalt blues, greens, turquoise, browns, yellows and some pink. The most traditional color is the deep cobalt blue.
