About Jaipur Blue Pottery

The use of blue glaze on pottery is an imported technique, first developed by Mongol artisans who combined Chinese glazing technology with Persian decorative arts. This technique travelled east to India with early Turkic conquests in the 14th century. During its infancy, it was used to make tiles to decorate mosques, tombs and palaces in Central Asia. Later, following their conquests and arrival in India, the Mughals began using them in India. Gradually the blue glaze technique grew beyond an architectural accessory to Indian potters. From there, the technique travelled to the plains of Delhi and in the 17th century went to Jaipur.

Some accounts of the craft state that blue pottery came to Jaipur in the early 19th century under the Ruler Sawai Ram Singh II (1835 – 1880).

    Gopal Saini’s Blue Pottery making experience was great, overwhelming, surrounded by amazing artifacts! He was so calm and patient with our lack of skills about the art form, even he overlooked my mistakes and encouraged us to create pottery items! We left with a beautiful blue pottery artifact and great memories of Pink City! Thanks Gopal Ji, highly recommend this authentic experience.
