Terracotta (or earthenware) is a porous and brittle material formed by the low heat of a traditional Indian kiln. Created by the interaction of earth, water and fire, this medium has found expression through almost every period of Indian history. Most terracotta art and pottery is produced by molding objects by hand or on the wheel and firing them in an open oven. A smoother finish, when needed, is given by rubbing and polishing the surface with wooden palettes or stones while it is still wet.
The terracotta tradition of creating figures of deities on ceremonial and auspicious occasions brings out the religious nature of their pottery. Geometrical etchings can be also traced in the pottery maintaining the traditional styles.
