I love terracotta and the variety I see every time I visit. It's too bad can't get them out here - the choices I mean. :(
I did not know that terracota had a roadside market in the south.i thought it to be a bengali monopoly.good one.can't help feeling tempted.what did anush get from her mom on turning 21 mths?
We have one store in the area that has a multitude of pots sitting outside. We finally stopped once and checked them out. Was quite a rather pricey place, and didn't find much that interested us.
rads- my SIL would agree with you- she is in Bostonhi hgmom- u know a lot of pottery is done in the South- pondicherry and andhra are pretty good at it- now a days they expreiment with gold/ brass/ black/ silver/ bronze paints- which is not as good as the originalbrick mud colourhey Alan- u back from the UK trip?we even store drinking water in terracota pots....it lends a distinct flavour and a cool feel as wellEven the city hi tech shop prices for terracota stuff in India is pretty low
hhgmom- anush got the pretty white outfit u see on the side bar and yet another book on her 21st
I first thought that you had taken this photo in Chennai. There is this place near “Valluvar kottam” where such terracotta pieces are on display.
there is a similar one there lavs and they fleece u and I dislike bargaining
Hi,Looks like they've got a variety. There's a similar place on the Bangalore-Tirupati road too, past Kolar- we bought two knee high horses from there for- yes, less than half the price they quote in B'lore. and they packed it beautifully in straw too.
We take the same (Chittoor) route while driving from Bang to Chennai and you are right!! We once got this huuuuge waist high urn for 500 Rs!! Are you also crazy about the cane shops you find in ranipet (I think thats the name!)?
justlthat- will look out for that one as wellkrishna- yes ranipet and walajapet are famous for their wicker furniture...the cradles and swing chairs are so well done....my first set of furniture was from therenow i am into antiques in solid wood....
