Because many of these vessels were found in peasant houses in the town of Kubachi in the Caucasus, the name "Kubachi" ware was given to the entire group.
This type of pottery is named after a town in the Caucasus, a region between the Black and Caspian Seas that encompasses modern-day Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, and parts of southern Russia, where many of these objects were found. However, it is likely that Kubachi wares were produced in northwestern Iran using fritware, a ceramic that incorporates large amounts of crushed quartz into white clay. The use of black slip to paint designs under a turquoise glaze is striking and highlights the free-flowing floral motif.
