Details 

Craft Type:  Channapatna

Around 200 years ago the ruler of Mysore, Tipu Sultan invited artisans from Persia to the quaint city of Channapatna to train the locals in the craft by carving toys out of ivory wood, rubber, cedar, and teak. Carrying on this centuries-old legacy, our craftsmen from Channapatna, create lustrous vessels using ivory-wood -- preferred due to its lightweight nature. In the recent years, this craft has gone global because of an increasing demand for wooden toys. In fact, the stronghold of our craftsmen over this art form is such that, the city of Channapatna is now famously known as the Toy Town of Karnataka.

Process:

- Many kinds of clays are available for this kind of pottery but our studio potters from Auroville and Shantiniketan use ball clay since it is found in abundance around them and can be treated very easily. This clay is carefully prepared by our potters using exact proportions.

- Kneaded to perfection, the prepared clay is then mounted on the potter's wheel.

- Where our craftsmen give it a shape using traditional hand-building techniques.

- Once the shape is ready it's fired in a bisque powered by local fuel.

- After the shape solidifies, it's glazed to give it a natural sheen.

- Once ready, the piece is left to dry under the sun for 2-3 days.

- On drying, this piece is glazed by dipping, trailing or brushing on a thin slurry composition of the glaze and water and then it's fired in a bisque.

- The colour of the glaze changes significantly before and after firing.

- Please note that the process of glazing renders porous pottery vessels impermeable to water and other liquids, thereby increasing their shelf life. 

Care

DO:

- Hand wipe your vessels regularly, using only a soft cloth or sponge.

- Make sure to wipe your metalware dry with a clean cloth, this helps to retain its natural gleam.

- Give your vessels enough time to dry before storing, this helps to retain their natural finish.

DON'T:

- Use a harsh stainless steel/metal scrubber to clean.

- Use a microwave to heat food in these products.

- Put your vessels in a dishwasher to rinse or clean.
