Last Saturday I had been to Potters' Town, which is at the other end of the city. It is a centuries old settlement of potters, who make earthenware. There are decorative planters, figurines, jars and many other things in the shops, all made of terracotta. I bought these earthenware things besides some plant holders. The pot on top is an urli made of clay and painted to look like antique bronze. People in South India keep flowers in water in it and place in the entrance hall of their homes, to welcome visitors.
