Terracotta - literally translates to ‘baked earth’ is a type of ceramic pottery made by firing terracotta clay. These handcrafted processes, to produce a reclaimable design object in Terracotta - the colour of the burnt orange, natural clay fired to perfection in a buzzing street in Kumbharwada in Dharavi, pays homage to localisation and optimisation of resources, through a programme of generating employment and uplifting artisans. The locally sourced clay is purified and placed on a turning wheel to be shaped further. Easy to sculpt in all forms and shapes, once moulded, it’s heated to calculated temperatures to harden followed by a simple coat of glaze to make it watertight.
