Blue pottery craft includes a series of steps – the dough is prepared with raw materials like quartz powder, cullet (the small chunks of glass are washed first and are grinded later to make glass powder. It is sieved to avoid bigger particles.), saji, katira gond, and multani mitti are mixed together properly to a non-sticky dough and kept for few hours before using. A mould is then made, painted with the natural material mentioned and heated to make the final product.
The India Craft Project (TICP) works with artisans all over India to co-create products and experiences that put our craft heritage at the center-stage. Crafts like these are so deep rooted in the culture of India and artisans derive pride from working on something that is uniquely theirs. Join us, as we at The India Craft Project, work towards motivating and maintaining their drive and endeavour to protect and promote our craft forms. Spread the light, this season!
