Traditional pottery : An art headed towards extinction day by day.
Hello friends, today I would like to let you know about an art which is headed towards extinction day by day from us and it is Traditional Pottery.
Pottery' is a traditional and lovable craft in Hindu families in Bangladesh and also in other countries. It's a traditional profession that is carried by their families in Hindu but the scenario of this profession is changing now. Recently I have visited some pottery villages in Muradnagar, Comilla where those families are living their lives with this lovely profession who are not interested anymore to engage their family members with this profession because of low demand of their products and really the demand of those products are decreasing day by day.
Modern peoples are using silver, bronze and melamine for household products like showpieces, plates, mug, sculptures, terracotta with clay etc.
I am astonished after seeing their activities in their working places. Their doing magic with their soft hands. They are touching the clay in the rolling wheel and making something a new item which is really a magic of their hands. I was seeing their lovely activities for long time. Really I love them who are making those lovely items with their passion. Let's move and visit with me virtually -
