Interior Design 101: Terracotta artifacts.

In today’s post we are going to discuss something traditional and very beautiful; that is clay/ terracotta art in interior design. Terracotta items have been a part of Indian culture since ancient times, the reason being its efficiency and beauty. They are basically clay articles that are baked in fire so that they become strong and water resistant. Although they are brittle but as they require very less time to make and very less raw materials, they have always been popular.

Potters make them even more beautiful and attractive by carving on them, painting on them, making them in different shapes and sizes, etc.

Not just utensils there are also many artifacts and home decor items made by terracotta, let’s have a look at it.

I am a huge fan of the indo-western trend, so here is an example of how you can achieve it in your house by introducing some artifacts of Indian origin. Some pieces of traditional art form can give your space an altogether different look. So, let’s see some options to use clay artifacts in interior design.
