Black Stone Pottery Workshop | India Craft Week 2019
About The Craft
Black Stone Pottery of Manipur is made from a mixed paste of ground black serpentine stone and special brown clay. The pots are manually shaped, polished and sun-dried. Potters collect the products and heat them in a bonfire which takes a total of six days to be completed. Black Stone Pottery is crafted without a potter's wheel. The potters deftly mould an amazing range of earthenware in various shapes and sizes. The baked pots acquire a black colour and look almost like metal.
About The Artist

Sasa said to be engaged in the art of pottery since 25 years along with his father.
