Semikarakorsk Ceramics

The floral-decorated pieces created at Semikarakorsk Ceramics are unlike anything else. Here local artists have managed to accomplish the impossible: Create a new type of painting design from absolutely nothing. The artwork is so seamlessly written into Rostov history that many people are convinced that these designs are at least several centuries old, but in fact, Rostov-on-Don’s trademark was thought up by painters from the 20th century. RTG TV host Olga Degtyareva found out what role corn plays in the production of faience, what ancient Egyptian craftsmen have in common with those working on the Don, what type of paint should be used to detail the ceramics and why sponge cake shouldn’t stick to your tongue.
