The skilled terracotta manufacturing units are located in Bankura, Bishnupur, Birbhum, and on the beds of river Ganges where the potters from India, who need no introduction to the connoisseurs of the art anywhere in the world, carry out this fabulous legacy of art. The terracotta products are eco-friendly and bio-degradable. The clay is solidified and wedged to be framed into the desired shape and size on the potter’s wheel. The theme is generally folk, and the patterns are fairly highlighted with traditional skill and explicit artwork. The womenfolk in the Kumbhkar families are the potters who work on the wheels making the round necks and the upper halves of the pots. They also make solid clay toys and dolls which are cast in burnt clay moulds. Large figurines of gods and goddesses are also made in clay, and generate a lot of income for these families.
