Photo Friday (17) – Black Magic

I picked up this Black Stone Pottery tea-pot and mug set from the recently concluded North East Craft Carnival, 2015 held at NEDFi House, Guwahati, Assam. The event showcased the crafts & handloom of the north east region. The above items are a few pieces of the Black Stone Pottery specific to Ukhrul District of Manipur. The most interesting aspect of this craft is that they are made without the potter’s wheel. 🙂
