Gone are the days when people always liked to pose for photographs. These days, they are often bored by the traditional style. Candid photography is rising every day simply because of the fact that candid shots look very natural and capture expressions that would otherwise have been missing. Even in event and wedding photography, candid is often the order of the day.
The Kumbharwada community is a unique world within itself. The living layout is simple, right in front of their door step is the pots selling area, once you enter the front door, you pass through the potter’s home, the living area and kitchen, behind their house is the workshop and kiln where the pots are designed and baked.
The Kumbharwada potters use a special type of clay, which is procured from neighbouring cities like Rajkot, Thane and Ahmadabad. This clay is gathered at Bhiwandi and Kalyan and then supplied to the potters of Kumbharwada. The yearly consumption of clay used by potters varies from 2-3 trucks for small producers to 12-14 trucks for the large producers. Today, most potters use the electric wheel for production unlike the manually driven potters’ wheel. The Kumbharwada potters believe that the electric wheel is a convenient option as an onetime upfront investment with negligible maintenance cost. However, small home based potters continue to use traditional manual wheels due to affordability.
