This isn’t junk clay, this is how blue pottery looks at the initial stage of preparation.

Here is a step by step description of how our craftsmen skillfully craft articles from scratch, and create the finest blue pottery! We promise this isn’t any ordinary pottery.

At Aurea, we do things a little differently!

Preparing clay like mixture with quartz powder and other ingredients.

Blue pottery is the only form of pottery in the world which doesn’t require natural clay or mud! We use a very special clay-like mixture prepared by soaking powdered quartz (stone) and glass pieces with small quantities of minerals.


At Aurea, we believe in hard work and perfection.

When the clay like mixture is pressed into molds and and left to dry, the form of articles is hardly perfect. To convert what-initially-looks-like-junk into a perfectly shaped articles, our craftsmen rub, scrape and finish the surface until all visible defects are removed.

Getting a hand-made perfect surface

At Aurea, we believe in the highest standard of perfection.

That’s why, a satisfactory even surface isn’t enough for us. The surface is layered with fresh coating of liquid clay-like mixture to get a very smooth surface, almost like paper.

If you look at a piece of blue pottery before firing, you might wonder that we have eliminated BLUE from our color palette.

The metal oxide colors applied on the pottery make painted articles appear in grey and brown hues before being fired in a kiln. A coat of transparent glaze is applied on the painted surface and the articles are left to dry. Upon firing, the glazed surface shines with bright blue tones.


At Aurea, blue pottery is not just beautiful, it is functional too.
