Terracotta Pottery (Glazed)

Bhuvnesh Prasad

This terracotta handi is the handiwork of craftsman Bhuvnesh Prasad, renowned for making large terracotta vessels, vases, and pots. These beautifully symmetrical objects are fired in a wood-fired kiln on the premises, where either a pure firing maintains the redness of terracotta or a smoke firing renders a matte black finish. Bhuvnesh Prasad is also currently making a new range of decorative pots with a marbling effect, achieved on the wheel by applying water on the leather-hardened pot followed by the application of a lead-free, clear glaze before firing.
