Blue Pottery is a centuries-old art and craft form. Originally a Turko-Persian art form, the art of making blue glaze pottery is believed to have come to Jaipur, Rajasthan via Kashmir.
Blue Pottery gets its name from the startling cobalt blue Persian dye use to colour the ceramics. It is, in fact, the only form of pottery that isn’t made of clay and is created from an Egyptian paste made by combining powdered glass, quartz stone powder, Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth), gum, borax, and water, contributing to the fragile nature of this art and craft form.
