Owner description

Dehanjerd (or Dehangerd) is one of the villages of Hamedan province, located in the village of potters in Laljin district of Bahar city, Hamedan Province. It is one of the villages of Laljin, which is located at 2 kms. This village is located 22 km from the provincial capital and a population of about 1050 people live in this village. Dehanjerd is one of the villages dating back to 1500 years ago. The result of the farmers' efforts in this village are products such as barley, corn, potatoes, cucumbers and garden products and especially grapes. Women, in addition to helping men in farming, have special skills in baking bread, livestock and carpet weaving which is very attractive and artistic. Laljin or “the capital of pottery in Iran” is located 20 km northwest of Hamedan and is one of the important pottery centers in Iran. According to archaeologists and historians, Pottery in Laljin has a very long history that dates back about 7,500 years ago. The excavations performed in recent years in the Hegmataneh hill indicate that Laljin was considered to be a major center for pottery and ceramics in the Middle East in the ancient times. And still about 80% of the population of the city of Laljin, which is something about 55,000 people, are engaged in the production of pottery and ceramics, and it can be said that pottery in Laljin for the people of this city was more than a job and profession, it is rooted in their soul.

    "Very Calming"
    It was unforgettable for me to work with mud there in Lalejin. This activity brought me back to my childhood and created a sense of calm in me. In my opinion, this activity is not only an art but also a remedy for stress. Thank you Nasim(my guide), who explained everything to me with patience, and the artist who presented us this art in Lalejin, and finally thanks to the Tlocals!
