Terracotta Art-Kumbham Pottery

I have a special corner in my heart reserved for pottery,terracotta and ceramics.
Today Iam going to let you into the wonderful world of KUMBHAM.

Jinan began his association with the artisans of Kumbham during 1992. Their joint explorations for the revival and sustainability of the potter craft helped the artisans realise their latent creativity and skills, enabled them to create their tools.designs and products.Kumbham Pottery was thus born.Located in Aruvacode, a tiny hamlet near Nilambur in Malapuram District of Kerala, India, Kumbham has attracted some 80 odd potters to affiliate with it to varying degrees, since its beginnings in 1993.

Today, Kumbham can rightfully claim to have facilitated a product range of over 500 designs, including kitchen and household ware; garden furniture and landscaping products and murals and architectural accessories. Terracotta to Kumbham is state of the art material, not the relic of an age past. Be it landscaping or interior decor, some of the best houses, corporate offices, guest houses, hotels, resorts and gardens in the country have relied on Kumbham to give themselves a refreshingly new aesthetic look.
Have a look.

Kids wardrobe

Look at this wardrobe,I designed in my daughter's room.
with a "soon to arrive new member"I badly need more and more of storage. I agree its simple but I wanted the carpenter to make something that will take minimum time. I have tried to make it intresting with the help of handles (Winnie the Pooh characters and two pretty butterflies)that could intrest a kid.Let me know how it is!
