Pottery from Shilparamam

I almost missed the Shilparamam arts and crafts festival this year (2007). Every year artisans from all over the country come to exhibit and sell their crafts. It is one of the exhibitions that I enjoy the most. I managed to go on the last day mainly because I really needed to get some serving bowls!! They were handpainted with designs that reminded me of Madhubani paintings… maybe they are. We had to leave in a hurry so I could not explore. Just went got the bowls and got back.

Here’s what I came back with.

Hi Archana
Thank you for Rang decor. I absolutely enjoy all your blogs and pictures. Shilparamam has been better. This year they have considerably reduced the number of stalls 😦
