Pottery production was originally evenly spread throughout the whole area of Slovakia. It was marked by a variation in type and decoration - in techniques, motifs and colourfulness. Contemporary pottery production is inspired by the richness of these original elements.
The term "faience" is also used for majolica. Its production was originally concentrated in western Slovakia, and current production continues from these traditions in this area. The Habans - neophytes brought the production of majolica to Slovakia in the 16th century. They came and settled in our area from southern Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Majolica products were used for display purposes because of their decorative motifs. Their method of production and appearance differ from normal pottery production.
