Terracotta clay pottery is as old as Bengali civilisation. This clay pottery uses all natural ingredients such as catechu, mangosteen extracts and charcoal. The clay is glazed with the juice of the mangosteen fruit extract and they are later soaked in this juice and baked in a wood-fired kiln. When they are placed in the kiln, the potter creates smoke and seals the firing chamber to blacken the clay.
