Allen, D (1998) 'Notes from the blue pottery.' Ceramic Review (170). pp. 22-23. ISSN 0144-1825
Figurative ceramist Daniel Allen describes his experience at the prestigious Blue Pottery in Jaipur, India. The pottery produces mostly functional wares, elaborately painted in very Persian designs with colorful raw oxides. Over his three-month stay, Allen experimented extensively with the local techniques and clay. The most alarming fact to cope with was that the clay was actually a pastry of 90 percent quartz and five percent each of ground glass and tree gum. Although his work was crude and fragile, the show of the work was very successful and received great reviews.
