ART STORY

Jaipur Blue PotteryOf Persian and Mongol heritage, Blue Pottery is a love child of cross-cultural exchange and trade. Travelling across Central Asia, the craft found a home in Jaipur, Rajasthan in the mid-nineteenth century.

Legend has it that Maharaja Sawai Ram II watched his kite-master lose the royal kite to two brothers who had coated their strings with glass-like dust from their pottery practice. He invited them to settle in Jaipur to practice and teach their craft.

Jaipur Blue Pottery

The pottery style uses a quartz-based dough, and is fired at low temperatures. The wares are then hand-painted with floral patterns of Persian origin with mineral pigments. They are then glazed and fired revealing intense shades of blue, greens, yellows and browns of the painted pigments.
