Indian TerraCotta

What is TerraCotta?

Generically, the broadest definition of terracotta refers to a high grade of weathered or aged clay which, when mixed with sand or with pulverized fired clay, can be molded and fired at high temperatures to a hardness and compactness not obtainable with brick. Simply put, terracotta is an enriched molded clay brick or block. The word terracotta is derived from the Latin word terracotta-- literally, "cooked earth." Terracotta clays vary widely in color according to geography and types, ranging from red and brown to white.
