Ceramics have a long tradition in the southern Westerwald region, thanks to the abundance of clay that is found there. The tradition is continued today by the numerous potteries in an area known as Kannenbäckerland, where household items such as jugs and dishes are produced in the grey-blue colours typical of this style of pottery. Workshops displaying more contemporary pieces attest to the way ceramics have developed in this region, while the history of the craft can be traced in the Ceramics Museum in Höhr-Grenzhausen. Two major international ceramics markets in Höhr-Grenzhausen and Ransbach-Baumbach attract thousands of visitors every year.
