  • Traditionally clay has been the best source of water storage in excessively hot regions of the country. 

The pores in clay help in maintaining water and other liquids in correct temperatures that satisfy the thirst effectively. 
  • These artisans follow the traditional technique honed over ten generations working on clay from the Cauvery river delta. These last generation artisans live as a community and work together to retain what is left of their tradition. The next generation is looking for better opportunities than take up this art-form and carry forward their legacy.
  • The only mechanisation that has happened till date is the motorised rotation of the wheel. Everything they do is hand-made- from mixing the clay, creating the cookware including the traditional way of baking the clay under heaps of leaves and covered with clay.
  • When we explore the depth of their artistic skills, we tend to appreciate the effort and value of their work.
