If you are looking for traditional Romanian decoration or a new typical Romanian tableware, you have clicked in the right place!
You will find on this page ceramics coming mainly from Horezu, a Romanian city recognized for its ceramic art which entered in 2012 in the cultural heritage of UNESCO. The creations you will find are made of porous earthenware and are mostly colored in red, yellow, blue, green and brown, characteristic of Horezu.
Horezu ceramics are recognized by their very significant shapes such as plant motifs such as the fir tree and the ear of wheat, as well as animal motifs such as the rooster and the snake.
