Book Description
Clay is essential to Indian culture, past and present. It is accessible everywhere: it takes form with very little effort: and its fragility assures its constant renewal. It has been the prefect vehicle for Indian creativity throughout the ages. The shapes and styles of items made of clay, both fired and unfired, are innumerable. They comprise everything from the miniscule to the gigantic, from simple to highly ornate, from realistic to abstract, from purely practical to utterly fantastic. Many of the potters who make them act dual roles as craftsmen and as links to the god. Their products are often remarkably similar to those found in ancient archaeological sites and many potters believe that they are directly descended from India`s earliest craftsmen.
