The Potter's Wheel,
Sri Lanka, Kandy and Around
Info : The Potter's Wheel
The tradition of pottery has been a part of Sri Lankan tradition since the earliest days. Certain villages were known as pottery villages as almost every household produced pots for the surrounding villages. Even today, such villages exist, though they are hard to find.
We take you to one such village where pottery is the main source of income. Piles of raw pots drying under the sun like clay baubles, finished products from kiddies play pots to big round pots that are used to carry water being sold by the road and the sight of potters with clay up to their elbows spinning a lump of clay till it rises to become a beautiful water jug will intrigue you.
But why just watch? Try your hand at this ancient art form and learn the process from the clay pits to the kiln.
We just wanted to say a big 'thankyou' for all your hard work with our holiday. We had a fabulous time and the accommodation and organisation was spot on. We loved the Mud House and thought it was our favourite place. We are not so sure now, as the rest was great and the villa was complete luxury.
