About the Artform

Building with terracotta, which is baked clay, is an ancient and traditional art form of the Indian sub-continent. An eco-friendly building material resource, it is known for its distinguishable natural hue and has usually been used to build walls and roofs, utensils or small effigies and figurines. Lantana is a weed that disrupts forests that are widely grown in waste lands of Karnataka. However, the wood in stick form can very well be used to build furniture and even sculptures!
