The Jaipur School of Art, set up in 1866, produced unique pottery with floral motifs glazed in turquoise and cobalt blue on an opaque white surface. The art of glazed blue pottery was introduced in India through Persia and it has now gained recognition as a traditional craft of Jaipur. This type of pottery is usually hand made and the colours are a result of the feldspar minerals used along with fuller's earth, glass and gum. Blue pottery is still very popular and has a huge demand in the Indian as well as Western markets.
