Representing the artistic traditions of Persia, Asia Minor and Mughal India, this piece of Jaipur Blue Pottery comes directly from the studio of Late Mr. Kripal Singh Shekhawat, fondly remembered as the Father of Blue Pottery. First developed by the Mongols by combining Chinese techniques and Persian aesthetics, this craft was brought to India by the Mughals.

Blue Pottery of Jaipur is particularly famous for not using clay. Fashioned with ground quartz, glass, flour, fuller’s earth, gum, borax, colours, Egyptian Paste and ample skill, the process of moulding, painting and firing these pots at low temperatures is an arduous one.


Finished in original Persian hues, this pot was hand-crafted in Jaipur following the age-old traditions still practiced by Mr. Kripal Singh’s surviving family and loyal assistants. Once dead, the art is said to have been revived by Mr. Singh at the request of Her Highness Gayatri Devi of Jaipur.
