Regional ceramic makers in Italy are still manufacturing quality ceramics and can be found at online sites, such as Thats Arte. This site is also a place for identifying local Italian ceramic artists, such as Eugenio Ricciarelli, who produces unique hand-painted Italian pottery.

Remarkable glazed brick panels have been recovered from the ruins of Khorsabad ( Dur Sharrukin ), Nimrūd ( Calah ), Susa, and Babylon . They provide the first instance of the use of tin glaze; although the date of its introduction cannot be certainly determined. A well-known fragment from Nimrūd in the British Museum belongs to about 890 bc , and by the 5th century bc extremely large friezes, one of them about 11 yards (10 metres) long, were being erected at Susa. The presence of lead in the blue glazes derived from copper suggests that the lead may have been added deliberately as a flux, and that this glazing technique, like that of tin-glazing, subsequently was forgotten—to be recovered only at a much later date.
