Mother Nature has bestowed us with many precious blessings and Terracotta is one amongst those. The term “Terracotta” has been derived from a Latin phrase “Terra cocta” which means “baked earth”. In simple terms, Terracotta is nothing but clay-based earthenware. This is one of the ancient art forms which is a manifestation of human imagination and became reality with the invention of the potter’s wheel, recognized as the first machine invented to use the power of motion for productive use. As per Hindu Mythology, foundation of Terracotta is the outcome of integration of five elements encompassing air, ether, water, earth and fire.
The origin of Terracotta goes back to the era of Indus Valley Civilization to ancient Mesopotamia, from Greek and Roman civilization to Chinese history, everywhere traces of Terracotta sculptures, products can be found. Like other parts of India, there is a deep and glorious story of Terracotta in Bengal. Bengali artisans have not only excelled in the art but perfected with their craftsmanship. The major steps in making pottery involves collecting and blending two or more types of refined clay found in river bed, pits etc. Then after the beautiful shapes, designs and patterns are crafted by the artisans with their amazing traditional age-old skill. After drying the figurines, the artworks are baked in a kiln at a temperature range of 700-1000 °C and during this process, the iron reacts with oxygen which results in a fired body or reddish colour.
