[Winner of Director Special Award for documentary film in Heritage Film festival of India ,2015]
Nizamabad is a small town in Azamgarh District situated about 100 km (62 miles) north of Varanasi on the banks of river Tamsa, which feeds several lakes on the outskirts of the town.
The pottery of Nizamabad is characterised by its smooth lustrous black finish with sparkling motifs of silver grey etchings which resembles Bidriware of Karnataka. The black finish is due to application of clay slip, polishing and reduction firing.There are about 35 families still living in the town which is gradually diminishing.
In an effort to promote this craft, INTACH Delhi, organised a design development workshop with the artisans and made a documentary film.I hope you enjoy and we are happy for your honest feedback.
