The terracotta tradition in Rajasthan dates back to the Harappan age. Today too it continues, as it is one of the interesting pieces of art for the tourists. Most of these are made in the villages of Rajasthan. The state's excellent artistry has been instrumental in creating some of the most phenomenal images or art forms.
A mixture of clay is used to on the potter's wheel and pots of various shapes and sizes are created manually. Patience, concentration and meticulousness are highly required to make the pots.
These delicate pieces of art are made of fuller's earth, quartz, raw glaze and sodium sulphite. Partly made in moulds and partly on the wheel these are decorated with various designs on the surface with the help of cobalt colour.
