Pottery Tour, part I pots and potters...

The other day, I went with a few ladies on a tour of a pottery village on the outskirts of Delhi. It's in an area called Vikas Nagar and took about 45 minutes to an hour to get there from central Delhi. In this neighborhood hundreds of families have settled, coming from Rajastan, and continue their craft of pottery-making. It was very impressive. Here are lots of photos I took:

The tour was organized by a group called Indomania cultural tours--check out the website: The tour itself helps support the potters and their families by giving the village a large portion of the tour fee. It was amazing to be able to walk into these families' homes and work spaces. They were warm and welcoming. More photos to come...
