Terracotta was a trusted and valuable resource to Humankind since the days of our Cave Ancestors. There were pots, platters, bowls and jewelry as seen in the many archeological finds at Mohenjo Daro and Harrapa, the early evidence of the Indus Valley Civilization. From the Mayan period, we have the amazing Ceramic Bowls and Incense burner, among other finds, and in China, the awe-inspiring Terracotta Warriors.
Women in villages, where access to river beds for the soft clay, that forms the raw material is easy and the cost zero, work together to make ornaments that are then sold as popular contemporary or traditionally jewelry by retailers.
Hand-made, Hand painted, Eco-friendly, Sustainable and Soulful. Just Beautiful.
