Hala Pottery

Photographer:  Henry Cousens

Hala, thirty-five miles north of Haidarabad (Currently in Pakistan), was the main centre of pottery manufacture in Sind. Both tiles and ornamental pottery was produced at Hala. Due to their reputation some of the potters at Sind and Multan were brought to the Bombay School of Art for a time to superintend.
