INSPIRATIONS FROM BAKED EARTH- “TERRACOTTA”

Terracotta is actually a richly colored clay that is baked, can be glazed or un-glazed, and can be painted beautifully (polychrome). Usually, we find terracotta in the forms of sculptures, tiles, earthenware, art pieces, pots, roofing material, and bricks. Its archaeological founding dates back to the pre-historic era. Terracotta has been extensively used in Ancient Mesopotamia, Greece, Egypt, Indus valley civilization, China and even in Gothic architecture.
