Portrait 15: The potter and his creation

Kumbharwada or Potter’s colony in Dharavi is one place you will find more earthen pots, diyas, containers than people. The layout of the houses in the Kumbharwada is around fire kilns which are used to dry the pots after they have been kept out in the sun for a couple of days. It is not surprising to find a lot of elderly potters still creating working the clay into everyday objects such as this water container.
