There are different home blessings on Armenian Ceramic, in Hebrew and in English. Armenian Ceramic became a typical Jerusalem craft back in the beginning of the twentieth century when the Ottoman Empire commissioned a group of Armenians to repair the tile work on the Mosque of Omar. Armenian Ceramic charms us with its playful colors and its honest simplicity.
