Only a handful number of artists practice this age-old craft of hand painted terracotta in Kutch and Surendranagar. Wares are made using locally available clay on the wheel and the ornamentation is carried out by the womenfolk. Base coat is created using a dark terracotta colored slip of watered down geru, red clay and then patterns are created in black and white using bamboo stick brushes. Wares such as water pots called maatlo, money boxes called gallo and pots etc are created.
