A contemporary product in a very traditional craft, this wall art cum key holder is a must have for all craft lovers! It makes for a perfect decor accessory or a gift to someone who loves Indian Heritage crafts! Kutch Painted Pottery : This age-old craft dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization, with only a handful of families practicing today as most others have moved to other day-jobs. The entire process has been the same that was practiced ages ago - and all the materials used are completely organic and locally found! They collect mud from a nearby lake and make their own clay. The clay is given shape using hands or a potter’s wheel, and left to dry. The dried ware is then decorated with clay based colours (from locally found stones/clay which is ground into fine powder and made into paste) using locally made bamboo brushes and tools. Once dried, the ware is fired.
