The book describes the potters' long history as temple servants, drawing on temple records, oral tradition, and the Oriya-language Kurala Purana. A DVD (filmed by Cynthia Cunningham Cort) shows the potters' working processes and also the events of their annual festival, Kurala Panchami. The book also sets out the use of the pots within the temple by the cooks, puja officiants, and other categories of temple servants, notably their role in the production of the temple's mahaprasada.
