In this study the aim is to draw attention to two different technical subjects obtained as a result of excavations made in two important ceramic production centers like Iznık and Hasankeyf. The first one is to ascertain the use of many wrought bone vessels found around the kilns, in ceramic trash and ceramic plant in the excavation of Rome Theatre. As a result of our analysis we think that they are pricks used in sgraffito ceramics produced by the techniques of scrape that have been seen in Islam ceramic art since 9th century. The other one is little holes seen on some glazed ceramic pieces found in the excavations of Hasankeyf and function of oxidized metal remains ascertained on some pieces. According to these data we think that they are holes made so as to repair broken ceramic vessels and remains of metal bonds imposed in them. These findings carry a great importance for they are demonstrations of ceramic reparation 14th and 15th century.
