When dewdrops from flowers fall on the offspring of mud, the dampish scent of earth sanctifies our senses.
Craft Type: Longpi Pottery
Distinguished by its surreal black glow and rustic matte finish, this Manipuri pottery carries great historical significance. Longpi vessels were exclusively used in royal rituals, religious ceremonies and meaningful gatherings. In mythology, the earthen pot is said to resemble a womb, carrying healing medicinal properties. Crafted by hand-patting clay, our unglazed pieces acquire their natural sheen from an age-old low-firing process. Moreover, Longpi chips on ageing, creating unique patterns on each artefact - the perfect homage to the beautiful imperfections of the handmade.
