Today I would like to share with you another one of my enduring loves- terracotta. Being a true-blue Indian, I think it is in my genetic makeup to covet all things terracotta. So here are some interesting ways to bring terracotta to your home....

How lovely would this little horse look nestled amongst some greenery (could be indoors or out).

How about a giant vase? I feel one huge statement vase like this would fill up a corner beautifully. A few bamboo stalks (available here), maybe a small spotlight and...magic! Though this vase certainly needs no additional drama.

India abounds with terracotta crafts- from hanging bells to figurines like the one pictured above. A few inspiring images from the web....


Figurines made in the Bankura district of West Bengal. Read more about it here.

How cute is this terracotta matki (pot) found here on etsy?

Do you like love terracotta as much as I do? I would love to see some pics! :)


  1. Like the header... I simply love terracotta... but you dont find stuff as good as this.. (specially pic 1)...

    Your blog is turning out beautifully.. Well done!!

  2. Hi Patricia, thanks for dropping by! You know- funny thing about the little bankura horse- I used to have him! I had picked it up from cottage emporium when I lived in Delhi- I'm sure they still carry it in some form or another. I can't wait for my next trip back home-it's been a while and I have a lot of catching up to do. :)


Rant? Rave? Tell me about it!
