The earliest potter in Sri Lanka stood at his wheel as far back as 500 BC and his mind was filled with artistic traditions inspired by the surroundings. In his hand was one of the world’s richest clays, the raw material that has since helped Sri Lanka make a name for itself in the ceramics and porcelain industry world wide.
The techniques used centuries ago may seem rather basic by today’s standards but the level of creativity that was part and parcel of the industry at the time added a touch of class and splendor to the end product.
End products of the local industry came in forms of pots, goblets, drinking vessels and receptacles – and they reach the humble farmer and powerful monarch alike.
While pottery has retained its artisan-like quality, it has become a global enterprise. Dankotuwa Porcelain and its subsidiary Royal Fernwood are well-known producers of innovative and designer tableware.
The factory located in Dankotuwa and Kosgama has been in existence for over three decades and at present has a production capacity of 1.6 million pieces per month.
