Among the earliest experiments carried out at the Sir J.J. School of Art were the successful efforts to improve the production of different types of pottery. Experiments with pottery at the George C. Clark workshop at the Sir J.J School of Art produced a range of colours and forms that were very popular in Europe and India. The most popular tints used in the Bombay School Pottery were white, blue or turquoise, dark blue, dark green, gold, and flesh. This flower vase with a narrow neck and saffron coloured glaze is one such example of pottery produced by the students at the J.J. School of Art. This kind of pottery was very popular in the Western market and at the international exhibitions.
