The people of Azerbaijan are one of the oldest nations passed through a complicated historical way. Over the centuries, a rich and diverse culture has been created here. Decorative-applied folk art has become one of the most developed areas of this culture. Each form of artistic creativity proves the talent and moral richness of the Azerbaijani folk.
Being one of the examples of decorative-applied art, the ceramic craft is considered to be the most valuable cultural heritage for all humanity. Peoples' roots, ancient history are defined by their ceramic traditions. Throughout history, ceramic is associated with human life and expresses its aesthetic pleasure and outlook. Numerous ceramic samples and ancient wood stoves have been uncovered during archaeological excavations throughout the entire territory of Azerbaijan, especially in Shaki.
