ABOUT LONGPII POTTERY

Traditionally known as Longpii Ham, this style of pottery originates from Manipur. This black ware pottery uses hard serpentine rock mixed with clay, which is then hand moulded into pots, pans, etc without the use of a potter’s wheel. This can be used on fire directly and is microwave safe.
