The manufacturing units are located in Bankura, Bishnupur, Birbhum on the beds of river Ganges where the potters from India, who need no introduction to the connoisseurs of the art anywhere in the world, carry out this fabulous legacy of art.
The clay is solidified and wedged to the framed into the desired shape and size, on the potters wheel. This is followed by hand - craft for decoration and design like inlay, handle making, etching etc. After drying the product is given finishing by sand paper and sponging and then the initial firing is done at 950°C, followed by glazed firing at 1050°C in the kiln. Meticulous care is taken to retain the natural grace and feel of the products.

The clay used is generally a blend of two to three clays found in river beds, pits and ditches. More often than not the fuel used is one of the local resources available in the form of twigs, dry leaves or firewood. The kilns where the clay pots are baked are operated at temperatures between 700 -800 degrees Celsius.
The womenfolk in the Khumbkar families are the potters who work on the wheels making the round necks and the upper halves of the pots. They also make solid clay toys and dolls which are cast in burnt clay moulds. Large figurines of gods and goddesses are also made in clay and generate a lot of income for these families.
