Hira Pottery of Assam

Hira Pottery of Assam


Pottery is as ancient as the civilization on Earth. Pottery in Assam is associated with two communities namely Kumhars/Kumar's and Hiras. Hira's are probably the oldest of the potters and one of a kind as they do not use potter's wheel for production. Pottery in Hira community is the work of women folk while the trading and sourcing of material is handled by men. The common earthen products are vessels, pots, pitchers, plates and other modern day items.
