  9. Hi, thank you for these recommendations. I am looking for ceramic clay - do these shops carry different colors?


  10. I'm afraid these stores do not sell clay. You'd need to go to the delhi art college (tilak marg) and enquire where they get their stock of clay from. or call the delhi blue pottery trust for information. you'll find the contact details in the link below

  11. hiya!

    where can i get the basic stuff to set up a small home studio for pottery?
    i have a wheel now, but need to get some wood bats of different sizes, plaster board for drying out the clay, etc...

    any advice...and would sitaram carry these things?


  12. get in touch with the delhi blue pottery trust people and they should be able to help you. all the best!

  13. Hi,

  15. Is there any art suppliers shop in delhi which offers online shopping and shipping of the orders?

  16. I'm sorry but i'm not aware of such a store. do drop me a line if you find one anywhere in india. that will be very useful.
