ARTISANS making Alakatpa clay pots, also known as Pyatho clay pots, in Myinmu Township, are reportedly earning steady incomes from their craft.
The clay pots, used to store drinking water, are famous for their design, which keeps water cool.
The Alakatpa pots, made from a combination of silt, ocher and sand, are baked in hay fire during the Myanmar month of Pyatho (late December and January) to be used during the summer.
The pots are a popular product among the township’s residents, and the pot makers are earning steady profits.
Other characteristics of clay pots in Myanmar come from the delta township Twente, from Nyaungyan in the middle of the
country and from Myaung and Sagaing in upper Myanmar.
