Blue Pottery Diwali Diyas (M) - Set of 6
Tea lights and diyas form an integral part of our Indian households, especially in the festive season. Light up your home this festive season in an exquisite way with this diya set. It's can also be used to decorate Rangoli.
The gift set has been handcrafted by Indian rural artisans of Jaipur, Rajasthan. The craft gets its name from the distinctive Persian blue colour used to dye the ceramic. The art of making blue glaze pottery came to Rajasthan via Kashmir, their entry point to India.
The art uses a mix of powdered stone and glass borax gum & water to produce what is known as Egyptian paste which is then glazed and low fired which is what gives it its color and finally decorated with animal bird and floral motifs.
