Making clay diyas/lamps on the potter’s electric wheel seems easier for a commoner but it takes lots of patience and experience to prepare a beautiful pair of diya. The process begins by filtering/sieving the mud. Then the fine mud is mixed with water and kneaded thoroughly to gain the required consistency of the clay. After the clay is prepared the essential quantity of clay necessary for making diya is taken and the remaining clay is covered with the wet jute bag to retain the moisture of the clay. Later a lump of clay is put on the potter’s electric wheel and the wheel is spinning/turned. Then by applying pressure, the clay is forced to set in the centre of the wheel. The extras of the clay are scrapped out by spinning the mound of clay. Then the mound is pinched on the top centre using the thumb finger and by taking the support of the left hand the shaping of the clay is done. Once the required shape of diya is acquired it is removed from the rest of the clay lump by using a needle that is attached to a bamboo stick. It is the trickiest and most challenging part of separating the shaped diya from the remaining lump. These diyas are arranged on the wooden plank one after the other to recognize the order they are made and are dried under direct sunlight. Once it is dried in sunlight it is fired in the kiln at 800 degrees Celsius. After the firing of clay diya, it is allowed overnight to cool down completely. Then as per the demand, some diyas are enamelled and some are retained plain and sold.
