Hand-painted Terracotta Jug
I bought some terracotta items for my wife and she was so pleased. They are beautiful and great price too.
Thanks a lot David... and thanks for a fabulous new word to add to our vocabulary. x
Terracotta is literally baked earth.
The natural, clay-based material, which only requires low temperatures to harden, allows a simple and sustainable production.
The products are fired in kilns built from recycled bricks and heated with firewood.
All vases are thrown and decorated by the hands of local artisans in villages of West Bengal in Eastern India.
For this reason, variations in size, shape and decoration naturally occur. The human touch cannot be overlooked and that is exactly what makes each vase beautiful.
The item may get damp when containing water over time.
