Pottery is the art of making pots and other utility products with clay. The craft is one of the most ancient forms of human inventions and is a living example of cultural expression with an ageless technology. In West Bengal there are several concentrations of artisans involved in pottery – one such location is Kunoor in Uttar Dinajpur district. Almost every member, in every household, is involved in the craft process at different levels. The practice of the craft runs through generations and is an inherent skill for the younger generations who have immense interest in the craft.
Under the RCCH initiative, about 329 potters from the districts of Uttar Dinajpur and North 24 Parganas have participated.
