Sanganer, on the outskirts of Jaipur is the main center for producing glazed Blue-pottery which has its origins in Persia. Its distinctive feature is that no clay is used. It is made out of a mixture of Fuller’s earth, Quartz and Sodium Sulphite. The special turquoise blue color comes from Copper Sulphate and the deep blue from Cobalt oxide. Blue-pottery articles like flower a vase, pots and jars, lamp stands and even doorknobs, are decorated with traditional and arabesque motifs of animals, birds & flowers.
