• Add a touch of class to your bathroom décor with this lovely set of bath accessories that comes with a soap dispenser, soap dish, toothbrush tumbler and mouthwash cup. • The ceramic accessory set borrows from Blue Pottery, a traditional Jaipur craft with a Turko-Persian origin. It takes its name from the vibrant cobalt blue dye used to paint the pottery. • Jaipur blue pottery, produced with similar frit material to Egyptian faience, is glazed and fired on low heat, rendering them fragile. The craftsmen blend quartz stone powder, powdered glass, Multani Mitti (Fuller's Earth), borax and gum with water for preparing the dough for the pottery. The colour palette for the craft is limited to blue with hints of green from copper oxide and white. However, sometimes the artisans experiment with colours like yellow and brown. • The touch of blue glaze on pottery is an imported technique introduced by Mongol artisans who fused Chinese glazing technology with Persian decorative crafts. This technique sailed east to India with the 14th-century Turkic conquest. Later, the Mughals commissioned blue pottery in India following their arrival to the subcontinent. • The eye-catching set will also be an ideal gift for housewarming parties.

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.
