Gzhel Russian style of ceramics
In fact, Gzhel takes its name from the village of Gzhel and surrounding area, where local craftsmen produced it since 1802. About thirty villages located southeast of Moscow produce beautiful pottery and ship it throughout Russia, and abroad. The name Gzhel became associated with pottery in the 14th century. Gzhel pottery was originally created by potters in their homes, however fairly early on these potters started to organize into workshops to increase production. The workshops eventually became a factory with pieces being formed in moulds and potters being responsible for separate pieces, a specific style, or decoration.
