Salt and Pepper Shakers Jolly Ducks

Salt and Pepper Shakers Jolly Ducks
Blue Ware Pottery, or quartz pottery, is a special technique that came to Delhi in India from Persia and Afghanistan. The base for this distinct pottery is quartz and not clay. All the materials that are used in the production, such as quartz, raw glaze, sodium sulphate, and Fuller's earth or multani mitti, require the same low firing temperature, and the pottery needs to be fired only once. However, low temperature firing also makes the pottery fragile and porous. The delicate decoration, often depicting flowers and geometric patterns, is painted with a brush made of squirrel hair.
