A pottery festival organised recently at Raipur’s Barai Para witnessed people basking in the traditional art form of the state. Porters across Chhattisgarh took part in the three-day festival which also beckoned foreign tourists from The Netherlands and Belgium. At the exhibition, the porters displayed some of the oldest forms of potteries which were sold to the patrons in attractive prices. One of the organisers of the event Dr Avinash Shukla said, “Such festivals are important to celebrate as it highlights the native art forms such as pottery which makes Chhattisgarh a unique state.” Interestingly, visitors also learned the traditional art of pottery right at the haat.
