Details 

Craft Type:  Longpi Pottery

The handcrafted beauty of this Longpi bowl, with its rough edges, is obvious at first glance. Longpi pottery is a treasured craft that is known for its black colour, its rustic quality and matte texture, and the feel of fired clay. The black colour of the pottery will bring out the green of your salad leaves, red of the beets and orange of carrots even more. Use for a single serving or for sharing between two people.

The Longpi products at Ikai Asai are handmade by craftspeople belonging to the Tangkhull Naga tribe in Manipur. They are from the Longpi Kajui and Longpi Khullen craft clusters in Manipur’s Ukhrul district. Each product is painstakingly handcrafted over a long period of time.

This product is handcrafted and therefore slight variations in colours, textures and forms are inevitable and aren’t flaws.

Process:

The major materials used to make Longpi pottery are locally found lishun lun stone powder and weathered rock clay powder. Based on the product being made, a ratio of these two powders is determined and worked into a clay dough. The dough is left to age for a few days, and it is then shaped entirely by hand or with a mould, as required. Most tools used in this process are handmade by the craftspeople themselves with locally available resources. For instance, the ‘hmaphapi’ is a long stick, made of grass and covered in net, that is used for shaping. Once formed, the clay product goes through multiple rounds of shade-drying until it is bisque-fired at a very high temperature (around 700º – 900ºC). The scalding artefact that comes out of the kiln is then rubbed with Chirona leaves and left to cool until ready.
