Multan, the city of Pakistan is the main and focused point for handmade and handcrafted blue pottery. The Kashi artists of subcontinent came to Multan and taught other people about this art of blue pottery. At that time, Multan was the only city where blue pottery items have been made but now many other cities are making and promoting ceramic pottery.
Furthermore, if we go into the detail of blue pottery that how it actually made then you will find that it takes time in making and also has been made with such amazing skills and effort. Each piece of blue pottery has been decorated by the hand of Kashi artists and he put all his skills and versatility in each piece with such dedication to make it more attractive. Potters make dough of white clay, glass powder, gum, and water then add this mixture into the molds made by the plastic of Paris then let it dry. After drying the models, all the pieces have been handed over to the artists. This artist makes different designs with special colors and their hand movements made each piece a unique one. After that, all products have been glazed and fired for a few hours to make it durable. Finely glazed blue pottery products are long-lasting and also don’t have the bad effects on health.
Meanwhile, the Institute of Blue Pottery Development in Multan is working on the development of this dying art. Students of this institute have been encouraged to develop new and unique designs and they are also using modern and latest techniques as well. Girls of Multan are working on the different color scheme and modern designs to take the blue pottery to the next level and let the art breathe again!
