Clay, a natural material, is used to make Stoneware wares. It is kneaded and then thrown on a pottery wheel, where it is shaped by hand into this product. The clay product then goes through the process of bisque firing, glaze application, drying, and then glaze firing to make the final Stoneware product. Pottery in the Indian subcontinent has a long history — it has existed as a craft form for centuries. Evidence of earthenware has been found in the early settlements of Lahuradewa and later during the Indus Valley Civilization. Recent times have seen pottery taking on modern design sensibilities, aided by artists and potters that are breathing new life into the craft form. Studio pottery in India is said to have been started by Rabindranath Tagore in Shantiniketan, West Bengal. It further branched out into two styles, which developed in Delhi under Gurcharan Singh and in Pondicherry under Ray Meeker’s Golden Bridge Pottery.
