The creation of pottery or earthenware – this is a science as well as an art-form. As in many other parts of the world – this art has developed a long way in India too. But simultaneously – its also maintained its roots by being done pretty much in the “classical” way.
Pottery is sold in nearly every street-corner in India. It gets used for decoration as well as for utilitarian purposes – or of course a bit of both. In homes plants are grown mostly in earthenware pots, such pots are also used for cooling drinking water, earthenware is used for serving food in and a host of other purposes. This earthenware can be used in its unglazed or glazed form. The creation and sale of these form a fundamental source of livelihood for a number of artisans and salesmen.
