Hi all..the craft tradition of India was firmly established in the antiquities of Indus valley civilization. The Indus people were indeed expert craftsmen. They made beads of carnelian, agate, amethyst, turquoise, lapis lazuli, etc. They manufactured bangles from shells, glazed faience and Indus Valley - Terracotta slip painted bowl and dish terracotta and carved ivory and worked shells into ornaments, bowls and ladles. a very important aspect of this ancient Indian craft was pottery. The ancient Indians also cast copper and bronze for weapons, all types of tools, domestic objects and statues they also worked silver and gold with great skill, specially for ornaments.

The art of printing, coloring, metal works and ivory works were prevalent during Harsha s reign. these are reckoned as the ancient Indian crafts. In Harsha-charit Bana has referred to sculpture, architecture and other arts at different phases. Kannauj, Valabhi, Ujjain, Varanasi, Kanchi etc. were the main centres where different arts and crafts flourished during Harsha s reign.
