Beautiful earthen pots or the simple yet elegant diyas that are so omnipresent during the Diwali all have undergone a journey through the potter’s wheel. Having originated in the Neolithic age, pottery still retains its place in the modern world. This is marvel, as today people are not technically dependent of pottery as so many material innovations have been made. So what makes pottery so special today? It is perhaps the earthen smell, the elegance of the craft or the love for the tradition that makes pottery so fascinating for the youth of 21s century.
