An Armenian woman sits inside of her studio and freshly paints a pot in the Old city of Jerusalem on November 23, 2015.

One of the four quarters of Jerusalem’s Old City is the Armenian Quarter. It’s located between the Yafo and Zion gates.

Armenians have been in Jerusalem since the fourth century CE. Though many arrived only after the 1915 Armenian Genocide committed by Turkey.

The entire Armenian quarter consists of no more than around 1000 people.

But there you can find genuine (Jerusalem-style) Armenian pottery and artwork, and even watch as it’s made.
