Blue Pottery – Traditional Craft of Jaipur
‘Blue pottery’ is named so after the blue dye, derived from cobalt oxide, used to colour the artefacts. Their splendid colours and patterns lifts your spirits to a higher level. Blue Pottery has its origin from Persia but through the years has found its home in India…in the majestic city of Jaipur. A city of kings and royals, it is here that one of the rulers who was a connoisseur and promoter of art encouraged this form to flourish. Various traditional and contemporary articles of exquisite designs and patterns are made of Blue Pottery. The craft derived its name from the eye catching blue colour which is dominant in this art.
