One of the oldest industries of the district, pottery still contributes substantially to the economic life of the people. The fancy pottery made in Nizamabad is famous in the world. The potters make tea-pots, sugar-bowls and other decorative articles. The earthen wares and statues of Gods and Goddesses particularly of Ganesh, Laxmi, Shiva, Durga and Saraswati are also made.
The distinctive colours can be credited to the process in which the articles are fired in enclosed kiln with rice husks. The smoke that is generated in the process imparts the black colour. Designs are etched on the dry surface, which is then filled with silver paint that is made from zinc and mercury. To lend a glossy look to the products, some vessels are coated with lacquer when still hot.
This page is an honest effort to give visibility to this art and promote their business. If you want to help this community, please get in touch with page admin.
