Terracotta Carving
Genesis: Terracotta craft is as old as the civilization itself. The craft form in Orissa finds its genesis the traditional potters’ houses. Apart from utensils a variety of decorative items like horses, elephants are manufactured using specially prepared clay, dried & burnt for stability. Since the articles prepared by a traditional potter have lost their importance due to cheaper and better substitute the craft form has undergone a transformation over the years. The same potters’ wheel is being used for developing a variety of market oriented products like flower vase, decorative tiles, planter, lamp shed etc.

Present scenario: With changing lifestyle and taste of consumers the traditional products are replaced with modern day utility items which have a ready market. Properly packaged terracotta items are even being exported as an impact of design intervention.
