Hema visited ‘Kozhiyanursalai village with Raghu and Ramesh of the ondicherry Science Forum (PSF) who had visited us at Bangalore in June this year. The village has several traditional potter families who make cooking & water pots for the local markets and in addition some nice terracotta horses/idols for the village temples too. Potter Thandabani replicated the 3 piece khamba proto on a trial basis & fired them. As Hema says, “they are not bad at all, the firing is good”.
Lets hope this leads to another clone and livelihood opportunities for the potter families there. Thank you Hema for all the effort.
