Clay and Terracotta of Andaman and Nicobar

The earthen pots of Chowra are hand-shaped by the women, with clay taken from the neighbouring island of Teressa. These are low fired using sticks and leaves. The finished pots have a smooth, shining surface and a pattern of thick, dark, chocolate-brown stripes obtained from the juice of the tender coconut husk, which is applied before firing.
