Jaipur Blue Pottery

Jaipur Blue PotteryJaipur, the Pink City of Rajasthan is a treasure trove for shoppers.

One can enjoy an irresistible shopping experience with the amazing Kundan jewellery sets, Sanganeri and Bagru block print sarees, beautiful Jaipuri Quilts and many other local pink stone carvings.

Among all these one of the famous items of handicraft is the traditional “Blue Pottery” of Jaipur. Blue pottery is an ancient craft of the place. The eye catching blue dye on different decorative items catches one’s fancy. 

This style of pottery originated in the Turko - Persian region and had come to India with the Mongol artisans. It had come to Jaipur via Kashmir in the early 19th century and became immensely popular among the rulers of the land. Artisans were trained just for these potteries. 

Main ingredient of this pottery is a special Egyptian paste which is glazed in a specialized Chinese glazing technique and low fired. The ingredients for this dough making are Multani Mitti (Fuller's Earth), borax, quartz stone powder, gum, powdered glass and water. 

No clay is used in any of the items. All these ingredients are mixed in a specific proportion and then carved into various decorative items like, vases, ashtrays, coasters, small and medium sized bowls and jewellery boxes. 

Why we call this “Blue Pottery” is because the artisans of Jaipur have kept the colour palate restricted to only “blue” which happens due to the presence of Cobalt Oxide. Although presently to draw more tourist crowd different non conventional colours are sometimes used like the green, white, yellow and brown, but a tinge of blue is always there in any of these hand crafted items.
