About

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

To promote the presence of the Longpi Hampai pottery across the country, Mathew Sasa, a resident of Longpi Khullen started an outlet named Mathew Sasa Craft at New Delhi in 2007. Sasa had acquired the skills of black pottery from his father Shilp Guru Machihan Sasa who is himself a skilled craftsman and owns Sasa Hampai Pottery Training cum Production centre in Manipur. Sasa said to be engaged in the art of pottery since 25 years along with his father.
