Our Story

Aura is a small pottery farm set amidst lush green fields on the outskirts of Chandigarh, India’s most beautiful city, designed by the French architect, Le Corbusier. The property houses the main house (where the resident family lives), a pottery studio and a small villa meant for the resident guests (who come in to explore pottery).

Aura Pottery was conceived as a relaxing retreat for studio pottery in India. It works best for people who want an experience where pottery is the central theme. Our vision is to offer a wholesome experience to visitors where they get exposure to pottery as a craft, develop ideas and meet interesting people. Our mission is to make your experience at Aura one that you will cherish for a long time.

Aura Pottery has 4 resident pets, namely Tofu, Fifi, Bosch, and Bono. They love all visitors and truly believe you have come to meet and play with them. Tofu and Fifi want endless petting, Bosch has more energy that can be dealt with easily, and little Bono is the baby of the pack; he’s still trying to figure his mojo!
