Blue Pottery

Blue pottery gets its name from the characteristic brilliant blue used in decorating it. The craft has travelled to its current center in Jaipur from a very long distance. It originated in China and was adopted and modified by Turkish and Persian artists. Mughal rulers brought back this art from their travels and had their artisans trained in it. Persian motifs were introduced into the craft in the process. The Mughals used blue pottery to decorate mosques, palaces and tombs in Central Asia. Kashmiri artisans began to use the art to create jars, pots and ornamental objects. The art then spread to the northern plains of India via Delhi.

The beautifully glazed and delicately painted objects of blue pottery are created through a laborious and painstaking process. No clay is used to mold the forms. A dough of quartz, multani mitti, powdered glass, borax, gum and water is kneaded and layered onto a mold and then packed with ash. Once set, the forms are removed and smoothed by hand. They are then decorated with cobalt oxide for blue, copper sulphate for turquoise, chromium oxide for green, cadmium oxide for yellow and iron oxide for brown. Once decorated, the pottery is glazed and then fired in a kiln for eight hours. After the kiln cools for three days, the formed pottery is removed. The final objects are inevitably one-of-a-kind, fragile, translucent and lovingly hand-painted with arabesque patterns featuring birds, foliage, animals and flowers.
