Beautiful places are situated in beautiful Villages. As well as beautiful village in rural places.

Pottery

Pots are made of clay. Pottery is a living craft that relates very much to the life of Sri Lankans. Small votive lamps, graceful water jugs, decorative ornaments and various cooking vessels of clay are very popular. Ever though there are many new ideas in this field many potters still employ traditional methods.
Most of the pottery is made on a rotating disk that the potter keeps turning. Its called the potters wheel and then the potter forms a pot by turning the lump of clay. Decoration to the pot is done by incising patterns or stamping with dyes while the clay is still wet. Most pots are fired in a primitive kiln built of bricks or stones. It is covered with a wattle and daub roof.
Pottery is now used mostly for decoration. Saucepans have replaced the clay pot in most homes.

Thank you and Have a nice day
