Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0944142753, Hardcover)

This book is the first to describe in detail a community of potters working for the Jagannatha Temple in Puri. As a pilgrimage centre of national importance, the temple requires earthenware in great quantities for the creation and distribution of the sacred food, an integral feature of daily ritual and pilgrimage. This study observes the potters' technical prowess, sustained by devotion, and the accompanying DVD shows the artisans at work, demonstrating their skills and products.
