Terracotta is one of the oldest craft that human beings ever introduced on earth.
It was once considered to be a poor man’s craft but in due course of time, it has made its ascent due to its aesthetic value and occupied a distinct identity among all classes of people. Artisans use potters’ wheels to make different shapes by using their own hands. The raw materials used in this craft are Ram-Ras Mitti and Gerua Mitti. After the completion, it is then burned on coal. This is a unique product handcrafted by artisans. This craft provides livelihood support to families of about 300-500 artisans on a regular basis in Darbhanga and Madhubani districts of Bihar.
