Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of Kothee and Chudoo workers, potters of Ahmadabad in Gujarat, taken by an unknown photographer in c. 1873, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. This image, of workers making large pots by hand with a paddle and stone, was probably shown at an exhibition in Europe. The kumhar (potter) makes unglazed terracotta or earthenware pots for the storage of grain, spices or pickles, and for transporting and storing water.
