Terracotta Figurines & Wall Hangings Making Skills
I have learned clay art from my mother, and I have seen her making various clay products since childhood. I use clay, fabric/acrylic colors, wood, and adhesives in my products. I make idols, murals, key holders, frames, wall hangings, etc.
Terracotta Figurines & Wall Hangings Making Process
First, I add the right amount of water to the clay and mix it well. Then I create products with my hands using creativity. Molds are also sometimes used to make products. These clay products are then heated in the furnace to strengthen them. All my clay products are made during the summer as the summer season is suitable for making them.
Benefits of Using Clay/Terracotta Products
1. I make clay utility products that are worth the money spent on them.
2. I make Vastu clay products that bring good luck to our homes and offices.
3. My handmade clay products are unique and beautiful.
My expertise is in making Ganesha idols.
Experience in Making Terracotta Figurines & Wall Hangings
I have 30 years of experience in this field.
Participation in Exhibitions
I have participated in many exhibitions in various cities of India like Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Ankleshwar, etc. since 1994.
I received the Best Artist Award from Gujarat University in a competition organized among 40 colleges in Gujarat.
Training Programmes Conducted
I am also running an NGO, called Kalakruti Art and Fashion, which aims to empower women. Here I teach women how to make various handicraft products like clay objects, murals, wall hangings, etc.
In the future also, I want more and more women to come forward and join this NGO to make themselves self-reliant so that they can lead better lives.
