The Anatolian ceramic art is quanlitatively and quantitatively older and varied than the ceramic in Europe. All the dimensions of traditional production in rural areas and traditional wood architects experienced a process of elimination due to modernization. The art of ceramics is one of the material traditions which is disappearing due to the unorganized structure of civil sphere.
