Beauty of clay

On our way back from a weekend trip to Oman on the Dubai Hatta road we spotted several shops selling carpets and pottery. When we stayed in Delhi we often visited local blue pottery shops but in Dubai it’s virtually impossible to find such roadside markets. Besides giving me that desi feeling of buying something from a roadside vendor it was also a great opportunity to add some unique pots to my balcony garden. These shops sell a wide range of pottery items such as jars, flower pots, incense holders, garden accessories, cups and piggy banks. The sellers are eager to show you around and ready to bargain.

This is what we bought. We have now painted two of the small jars and are hoping to paint the fish pot in bright hues. For now it holds a red flower plant I got from Ikea recently.
