Aura Pottery India – April Newsletter 2021

March at Aura Pottery was ALL about terracotta, terracotta and more terracotta! 

Earlier this year, in January, Anuja had a two week stint with terracotta and BIG pots. She made a couple of big pieces at Clayfingers, and fell in love with hand building them. This just HAD to be done at Aura! 

Here are two 22” high pots which are slowly drying in the studio and will hopefully be fired this month. We’re currently restricted by the size of our kiln, but the dream is to go higher and taller.

Another dream is to build an Anagama kiln at Aura this year (and call it The Auragama) We’d love to hear from fellow potters who may be keen on building one, and maybe later this year (travel permitting) we could host you in exchange for building a kiln with us.

Here are a few process pictures of building these pots! 

Pottery Retreats Start in August 2021. Booking Open Now.

Our pottery retreats are best suited to serious aspirants looking for personalized teaching and peaceful practice time. Doing a residential pottery retreat at Aura Pottery means you get to spend time with like-minded people, explore your own creativity, get inspired by others, and all along enjoy and learn the art of pottery in India. Here are some throwback pictures


We’ve had over twenty participants for workshops in March, and they were all super fun. Here are some pieces made by absolute beginners, and glazed by us for them to take away as memories of a fun two hour experience.
