Traditional Larnai Pottery

About the walk

A village known for its traditional pottery, Larnai is located in the Thadlaskein Block of Jaintia Hills, about 58 km from the capital city Shillong. The women of of the village, for many years, have engaged in the making of pottery items locally known as khiew larnai or khiew ranei.

The earthenwares are hand moulded using raw materials. The two kinds of clay used are khyndew iong (black Clay) which is obtained from Sung valley and khyndew khluit. The two clay types are mixed and then pounded using a wooden pounder known as synrai. The clay is then moulded and sundried. When the pots are ready, they are fired, after which they are coloured using the bark of the Sohliya tree.

 

This is an online-guided tour.
