Terracotta is derived from the Italian word “terra cocta” which literally means baked or cooked earth, which is nothing but clay based unglazed ceramics. Terracotta is used to make a variety of things like vessels, sculptures, waste water pipes and jewels. Terracotta jewelries are very fashionable and look very elegant and ethnic too. Terracotta was used even from the times of Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa. Clay is molded into desired shape and baked in the direct sun or under the kiln. Thus baked shapes are terracotta and are brownish orange in color. They can also take up any natural colors like pink, gray, red or rust.
