Budhiram Prajapati hailing from Palwal, Haryana has carried forward a legacy of Terracotta Craft which owes its genesis dating back to the Indus Valley Civilization. Budhiram is an adept potter and models his designs both by hand as well as the potter's wheel. His creations are aesthetic and sublime. He has practiced pottery over the years and creates terracotta products ranging from home accents & serveware. The terracotta is derived from a mix of sand & clay which is molded by hand and precisely fired in the kiln to give it either a glazed or unglazed ceramic finish. Budhiram Prajapati explains, that each product takes 1-2 days to design, mold, dried and finally the next day is finished with intricate tribal handpaintings or an earthen look.

The translucent form, also known as porcelain is also very popular. The raw material for this craft is clay & sand, derived from the beds of water bodies like river, lakes and ponds. The clay is cleaned, mixed and ten shaped either by hand, wheel or molded into desired object. The items are dried, fired and glazed as per the requirements. The clay or terracotta products are graded according to their color, strength and water absorption capacity.
