A bit of Sunday and Kumbham design

I first saw a terracota mural more than a decade ago, on a holiday in Kumarakom, Kerala. It took my breath away. It was done on the wall directly and was an amazingly detailed piece of work. 

And then some years back, I visited a terracota sale at Daram. The visiting card of Kumbham had something similar and if memory serves me right, then the mural work that i couldn't forget was done by Jinan, the artist who is part of Kumbham. (I am not certain, and even though i spoke to Jinan, my memory fails me.)

There's a sale of terracota products - murals, utensils, clocks, decorative tiles, planters. The sale is on till the 20th.

A terracota table made with Kumbham tiles. (I got the tiles but never got around to making the table!)
