Iran’s NW city of Koozehkonan to be registered as national pottery city

The historical city of Koozehkonan, 75 kilometers west of Tabriz in East Azarbaijan Province, northwestern Iran, was nominated to be registered as a national pottery city in Iran.

Due to the abundance of high-quality clay in the city, residents of Koozehkonan have turned into well-known pottery masters across Iran, IRNA reported.

The Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Department of East Azarbaijan Province, in collaboration with Koozehkonan Municipality, plans to register the city as the national pottery city in order to protect the glorious history of pottery handicrafts in the small city.

Local observers laud the move, saying that such a registration will help stop the demise of the art in the region.

Ramin Asbaqi, deputy head of East Azarbaijan Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Department, harbored hope that proper coordination will end up in registration of the city and its art on world lists.

According to Mayor Seyyed Baqer Mousavian, the Koozehkonan Municipality is planning on holding numerous exhibitions to introduce the city’s pottery to fellow Iranians.
