Check out the Mandala Pottery Studio, an online store that has ceramic bowls, tea bowls, art objects, jugs, teapots, mugs, tumblers, vases, plates, trays and boxes, all handmade at their more than 20-years-old workshop in Auroville.
Each piece that is designed at Mandala Pottery is unique in character, shape, design, and colour. A lot of the bowls are sodafired, in red clay or with intricate cutwork. They make their own clay and glaze it too. The bowls are priced at INR 2,000 onwards. The kettle and cup set reminds us of the ones that belonged to the European era. With minimalistic cravings and an adorb design, this piece is winning our heart and is priced at INR 750.
A simple plate with simple lines or cutwork costs INR 1,200. These plates can be both a prop in your hall or can be used as a dinner plate. Some of our favourite picks also include the crackle vase that looks like it belongs to the Indus Valley Civilisation and the porcupine-look-alike vase (a total conversation starter!). Their decorative pieces are worth checking out too.
