Crafting of Blue Pottery

The Jaipurs Blue Pottery involves making a paste of the clay. First of all a semi liquid paste of Fullers Earth is made. Water and blue color is added to this paste and mixed well so that the color of the fullers earth comes out to be blue. Persian Blue Dye is used to color the clay. The Pots are shaped on a special machine used for making the various designs of Pottery. Once the Pottery is made it is heated at high temperatures to make it unbreakable and un - crackable.

Once the pottery has been made colors like green and blue are added to it, to make it more beautiful. These days blue pottery also comes in colors like green and yellow, but if you are naive, then go for only blue color. Some of the Blue Pottery is even transparent and designed with Birds and Animals. There are blue motifs and floral carvings on blue pottery range. Apart from this the blue pottery may be broadly categorized into figurines of divinities, ceremonial pottery and votive offerings. Though the Indian Blue Pottery has quite a resemblance to Netherlands Delfware in its looks; still the procedure and design of Indian Pottery is completely different.

The beginning price of blue pottery is Rs 300/ - and it can go as high as Rs 10,000/-.
