I visited Pottery Town in Bangalore today. Wooo, hoooo…..
Pottery Town was born when the Government gave 60 potters a designated area on a 30-year lease and 23 families are in business here. It’s really only 1-2 streets, but still totally worthwhile visiting if you love pottery.
Many potters were at work, so I got to take different photos covering almost the full lifecycle, i.e. making the clay, wedging the clay, throwing, drying, firing, glazing etc
I had a driver take me there as I still have no idea how to get around and I stick out like anything. The traffic is crazy…cows and goats everywhere on the roads. The driver also walked with me around the potters as I kept getting in the way of the rickshaws, cars, cow poop etc. He is trying so hard to be my tour guide, telling me lots of stories but I have no idea what he is saying. Can’t make sense of his accent.
