Khavda Water Bottle Large
Khavda Pottery of Kutch

Rs. 1,000.00

This terracotta water bottle is handmade by special clay which results in natural self-cooling of water. It comes with a lid and handle.

'Khavda' pottery is an art form of Khavda, North Kutch . While the men do all the throwing in terracotta, the women handle all the surface decoration which in this northern Kutch village of Ludia is primarily in the form of painting.

The potter gets mud from a specific acre (A lake) area near village. It is called 'Rann ka mitti'. This soft clay is shaped into a pot on a potters wheel and left to dry in shade, then Kumbhar women use red, black, and white clay-based paints to decorate each piece of pottery with distinct community-specific designs. After a while, it is cleaned and put in the sun to dry and then baked in a furnace, powered by simple and locally available fuels of dry wood and cow dung. The vessels are coated with a thin wash of geru (red color). The pots of Khavda get their red colour from Geru, a type of soil (ocher/ umber), and the black and white dots and stripes are also made with natural material. Finished pieces lie aside, ready for drying. The terracotta pots of Khavda are distinct from the ones we may see elsewhere, because of their painting and form which is a result of repeated cleaning at every stage of the process of their making.

Pottery by Master Potters Kumbhar Abdul Ibrahim and Rahima Bhen.
