Shekhawati Floral Tile

An exquisite creation of the blue pottery heritage of Rajasthan. Hand made from ground quartz, green glass, fuller's earth, borax and katira gum; mixed together in a secret proportion. Hand painted with oxide colours and squirrel-tail brushes made by the first family of blue pottery. This beautiful tile combines generational firing/painting techniques with a more contemporary colour and design palette.

The art of blue pottery originated in Central Asia in the 14th century, through Mongolian craftsmen. It was later combined with Chinese glazing technology and Persian decorative designs. The Mughals then brought this craft to Kashmir and, by the 17th century, it reached Jaipur, Rajasthan.
