This article presents an account of the progress made by CG & CRI in developing some appropriate technologies for the small and tiny scale pottery industries of the country. Special stress has been laid in these technologies on the meaningful use of low grade raw materials in the manufacture of rural sanitaryware, unglazed flooring and facing tiles and low maturing white stonewares with matching glazes. In addition, an energy efficient low thermal mass down draught kiln was also designed and developed in this programme for reducing firing cost. Transfer of these technologies through trainingcum- demonstration programmes has been described.
