Culture is a Basic Need

Local Kiln


Clay and clay products are some of the oldest human started making and using at the dawn of civilization. Clay products are still sought after. Now people make things with clay using new techniques and equipment like pottery wheel clay. Explore Thatta Kedona Blog and you will see ceramic colors galore and clay pottery art that is pursued here at Women Art Center since the start of the project. Monika Kuppler is one of the veteran volunteers associated with development of clay products at Women Arts Center.


Inherently, women associated with pottery development have a problem – shortage of electricity from the national grid. In order to solve this problem, WAC has decided to install own kiln where pottery will be backed using local material. Tikedar Muhammad Iqbal from Harappa – one of the oldest habitat where civilization started – is building a local kiln. Monika and women are looking forward to back the new products here.

That is informative - I wish you had also provided details as to what is special about this kiln and how it is different from conventional kilns.
