About the Artform

In this session, you will learn about, clay art, Clay has been one of the most universal and versatile building materials throughout human history. Baked clay is called terracotta. Building with terracotta is an ancient and traditional art form of the Indian sub-continent. A multi-faceted resource, terracotta has usually been used to build walls and roofs, utensils or small effigies and figurines. In India, we have the famous terracotta temples and mosques of West Bengal that have stood the test of time, replete with delicate clay motifs and figurines. We have South Indian cuisine aficionados that swear by food cooked traditionally in terracotta utensils. Terracotta is known for its easily distinguishable natural hue and texture, apart from it being a durable eco-friendly building material.
