Pot makers (kumhaar)

This was another highly skilled and a traditional local industry which had been providing its services for the production of clay pots whether they were water containers or daily house hold utensils

Unfortunately this industry too has become a victim of modern lifestyle in the valley. Water coolers are taking over from traditional containers ( Gharahs) and contemporary plastic crockery have replaced clay dishes. Now only a few, if any pot makers are holding onto their ancestral profession to meet ever declining demand.
