Clay craft in India has very old history from the ancient days. In Kundapur, Pottery has both ancient and modern technology to create traditional as well as modern unique pieces. Traditional products such as water pots, cups, glasses, bowls and other storage items are created for daily use. Now-a-days, artisans are interested to create imaginative and innovative pieces such as garden decorators, lampshades, terracotta jewelry and clay wind chimes.
The skilled artisans of Kundapura have their own identity for their skill and creativity. In earlier days, the artisans were using traditional potter’s wheel to make the pots and other utensils. But the present generation artisans started using electric potter’s wheel to increase the productivity. Earlier the terracotta craft has only limited range of products like pots, bowls and water containers. Now- a-Days, the choice of clay products is increased after introducing terracotta jewelry, lamp shades, wall hangings and garden decorators. Diyas (Clay Lamps) are highly demanded among all.
