It was the production of glazed vessels and candlesticksin the shape of fantastic animals and birds, decoratedwith complicated patterns. Skopin got great popularity rather quickly. In the longyears of its existence the pottery craft of Skopin has undergonesignificant changes: the figured ceramic itemsare now made much smaller in size.
