Pottery Designs



There is no dearth to the patterns that may be created by an artist who is creative and innovative, and who has the ability to use his tools with skill. Every nation that has a pottery tradition , and every region within such a nation, boasts of unique patterns with which its pottery is adorned. But perhaps, it may be possible to categorize these pottery designs into a few broad groups within which indigenous styles have flourished.

The designs on pottery may be:

  • Linear: These ceramic patterns include stripes, checks, diagonals etc.
  • Geometric: These pottery designs are interesting arrangements of geometric shapes
  • Floral: These are patterns of flowers, leaves, vines, creepers, stems, trees etc.
  • Scenic: These patterns on pottery include landscapes, seascapes etc.
  • Animal and human figures
