• Exclusive and classy! Aesthetic jars have a special place in every home and in contemporary kitchens too! These beautiful Blue Pottery jars with lids are indeed a perfect accessory. • The signature craft from Jaipur, Blue Pottery, has its roots in Turko-Persian heritage. The rich blue dye usually used in the making process gives it the name. • Using blue glaze on pottery, first invented by the Mongols, combines Chinese glazing technique with Persian decorative arts. It later travelled to India with the Turkish invasion in the 14th century. During the early years, the Turks used the blue glazing technique for making tiles and decorating mosques, tombs and other monuments. Gradually it was adopted into pottery and, Jaipur became the hub of blue pottery in India. • Muralist and painter Kripal Singh Shekhawat and patrons like Kamladevi Chattopadhaya and Rajmata Gayatri Devi re-introduced the craft in Jaipur around 1950, saving it from extinction.

Jaipur Blue Pottery

Blue Pottery is widely recognized as a traditional craft of Jaipur, though it is Turko-Persian in origin. The name 'blue pottery' comes from the eye-catching cobalt blue dye used to color the pottery. Jaipur blue pottery, made out of a similar frit material to Egyptian faience, is glazed and low-fired. The 'dough' for the pottery is prepared by mixing quartz stone powder, powdered glass, Multani Mitti (Fuller's Earth), borax, gum and water. Being fired at very low temperature makes them fragile. The colour palette is restricted to blue derived from the cobalt oxide, green from the copper oxide and white, though other non-conventional colours, such as yellow and brown are sometimes included. The use of blue glaze on pottery is an imported technique, first developed by Mongol artisans who combined Chinese glazing technology with Persian decorative arts. This technique travelled east to India with early Turkic conquests in the 14th century. Later, following their conquests and arrival in India, the Mughals began using them in India.
