Back home in India...I have a huge collection of terracotta wall hangings,bowls,vase and so many things.I always loved the natural earthy and clay look of mud sculptured in the form of shapes and figures.Here are some natural looking art of India.

Painted Terracotta a New Trend

Earlier Terracotta used to have a look and feel of earthiness of baked clay look but these days Terracotta art has also got new changes...Artists are using great colors like green,orange and yellow,red to give a bright look to the clay..And it bring the look of freshly coated paint on the old walls


Jute Art of India

In India especially in Kerala,karnataka and Andhra pradesh there is huge cultivation of Coconut trees and apparently lots of jute is the by product of coconuts.So the local people came up with creative ideas of making jute a main component for art pieces.And now Jute industry is one of leading industries in India.
Today I am sharing these beautiful coasters which we use in our everyday life.
