  LITHUANIAN POTTERY

I could find beautiful examples ceramic decorative art in Kaunas, both in gift/souvenir stores, Ceramics Museum and for eample in Berneliu Uzeiga restaurant (on my picture). Except usual pots I could find ceramic beer mugs, bells, decorative eggs, money-boxes and black ceramics in Kaunas.



A few world famous artists creating ceramics learned the specificities of working with clay, stoneware and porcelain at Kaunas Art Institute (Department of Ceramics and Glass), which was a Kaunas branch of Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts.
