We passed the Jaipur Blue Pottery Art Centre three times before I remembered that Gino, my best friend’s husband, is a pottery whore. I didn’t know if it would measure up to the Italian pottery he’s seen so much of, but I figured he’d appreciate a gift from here anyway.
This was not only a sales outlet, it was also a school where they taught the next generation of craftsmen the art of pottery making. Jaipur’s pottery is distinctive not only for its color, but it is made from marble powder, among other things.
P.S. Gino loves his plate! It’s displayed like the work of art that it is on a shelf in the kitchen.
