Indian Wooden Water Pots

We love these traditional Indian wooden water pots. We call them pots but they may be made from wood or ceramic. Plastic is of course cheaper, more colourful and lighter – and more multipurpose – and is inevitably becoming more popular. But look around villages of India and Nepal and you’ll see these lovely old pots standing in a corner waiting to be used for grain, or water.

These clay pots were photographed in the attic of an old house in Patan, Nepal, summer 2013.

These are Wooden Water Pots that you can buy on this website, we love the simple shapes and decoration, either diagonal brass bands or beautifully executed bone inlay.

You can find them, and others, on the Indian Wooden Carvings and Antiques page.
