Historians date the beginning of pottery at Marginea in 1500.
Pottery appeared due to the necessity of storing food. The pottery had its role in primitive society development because it made possible the storage of food.
Due to its geographical position, Marginea commune is surrounded by forestes and it is crossed by the Sucevita river. All these features are fundamental for the craft born from the magical triangel of clay, water and fire. Before the communist oppression in Marginea there were at least 60 families of potters as declared an old potter who reached Munich to present his craft. (www.ceramicamarginea.ro)
