|PS106 Omani clay pots sold in Nizwa souq, Southwest of Sohar.|
Oman pottery is considered an ancient industry but is still popular until today specially in Bahla, a town next to Nizwa. There are evidences discovered in an archaeological excavation in Buraimi, a town West of Sohar, that prove the existence of this industry during the 4th millennium BC. The products of this thriving industry can be found in many Omani homes and in most top hotels, mostly used to hold water or as a decorative piece.
