Blue pottery, though Turko-Persian in origin, is widely recognized as a traditional and unique craft of Jaipur. Legend has it that blue pottery came to Jaipur in the early 19th century when one of its rulers, Sawai Ram Singh II (1835 -1880) set up a School of Art and encouraged artists and craftsmen from all over the country to come and settle here, a tradition started by his forefather. It is a 100% hand-crafted item which makes it exceptional in today’s industrialized and mechanized world of products.
Blue pottery is made out of ground quartz. The dough is pressed into molds and the unfired pieces are hand-painted with oxide colors, dipped in clear glaze and fired once in wooden kilns. Each product has its own identity and unique persona because it is entirely made by hand. Hence, the designs and artworks also cannot be exactly repeated and no two pieces are identical to each other.
