MULELA CLAY WORK

MULELA CLAY WORK

Mulela Clay Work locally called Molela Pottery or Molela Clay works. The pottery gets its name from the village Molela in Rajasthan, India where it is made. It is a small village approximately 40 km from famous Udaipur and 620 km from Delhi. This tradition of making the pottery has been on for centuries. The process has seen some change but in most has been preserved in all its pristine glory. Given its particular peculiarity, it has been granted a GI or Geographical Indication tag meaning only that clay relief work made in Molela can be called Molela Clay works. This has given a further boost to the craft as also design development. What is striking is that though used for worship and in temples once upon a time, today they are at ease in urban homes. Many a home has got the walls of the driveway covered with plaques of this kind. It is visually beautiful, evocative of another era, taking the person back centuries when pottery may have just begun.
