Image ID: 130882420

Caption : GUWAHATI, 08-02-2012: A potter belonging to Hira Community is drying potteries in Satpokholi village in Kamrup district of Assam on February 08, 2012.The Hira women who follow this centuries-old tradition do not use a wheel but MOULD clay shapes with their hands. After letting them dry in the sun they then use a wooden paddle to help assemble and beat them into the final objects before firing them and colouring them. It is their hereditary pursuits through female line, which has still retained its importance, aesthetic appeal, unique technique and skill. Only the Hira women make pots and the art is passed down from mother to daughter. Hira potters are distributed in Goalpara, Kamrup and Barpeta districts of the lower Brahmaputra valley of Assam state. Photo:Ritu Raj Konwar
