The tradition of using glazed tiles – mainly blue but also yellow, crimson, orange, dark gamboge, light vermillion, white, ochre, green, red continued through the Mughal period. This work was called Kashani after Kashan in Persia even though Lahore and Multan were the renowned centers that possibly fed India at that time. The art of glazing and painting tiles travelled from Persia and Samarkand to India which then included the cities of Multan, Peshawar and Lahore.
Blue Pottery is widely recognized as a traditional craft of Jaipur, though it is Turko-Persian in origin. The name ‘blue pottery’ comes from the eye-catching blue dye used to color the pottery. Jaipur blue pottery, made out of Egyptian paste, is glazed and low-fired. No clay is used: the ‘dough’ for the pottery is prepared by mixing quartz stone powder, powdered glass, Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth), borax, gum and water. Being fired at very low temperature makes them fragile.
