Terracotta Perhaps is the most common form of pottery in India. The pottery made in UP has a coarse to medium texture. This Pottery is made with the help of the potter's wheel as well as by hand.

Blue-glaze pottery of Delhi, Kashmir, Jaipur (Rajasthan) and Khurja (Uttar Pradesh) is known for the use of blue glaze on pottery made from Multani mitti, or Fuller's earth. This technique was first developed by Mongol artisans who combined Chinese glazing technology with Persian decorative arts. These traditional Persian designs have been adapted by the craftsmen. The potters specialize in making tiles, urns, jars, pots and vases, tea sets, cups and saucers, plates and glasses, jugs, ashtrays and even napkin.
