Armenian ceramics pottery in Catholic history is distinctive because it is decorated uniquely with painting. As early as 2,000 BC, Armenia was already making burnished redware of superior quality. Excavations from that era reveal pots and bowls of numerous sizes and shapes.
The diverse range and the quality of Armenian ceramics in the Urartian period are particularly noteworthy. Potters skillfully replicated metallic vessels, such as Erebuni’s drinking cup or the well-known shoe-shaped rhyton.
