Hi! I’m Sachii, a ceramics and glass designer by profession, and a terracotta potter by passion! Along-with corporate jobs, I’ve been working as an independent studio Potter for the past 14 years, exhibiting and selling my work through offline and online events and platforms.
Terracotta – the most basic of all materials – literally means baked earth. Ever since the discovery of wheel, human beings have been shaping lumps of dirt on the wheel, hardening the products in fire and using them for cooking and storing food. Clay pottery has thus been in practice since Mesolithic age!
India has a rich history of crafts, and different regions across the nation have their own distinct and very unique styles of terracotta crafts – like the Molela Craft of Rajasthan, Black stone Pottery from Manipur, Painted Pottery from Kutch and many more!
What I'm presenting here is a small collection of designer as well as curated range of both functional and decorative lifestyle accessories that include cookware, serve-ware, home and wall décor and even architectural accessories like tiles in heritage terracotta crafts. My vision is to bring back the natural, humble, sustainable and bio-degradable clay into everyday lives!

Longpi pottery assortments
Longpi pottery from Manipur is made from a mixed paste of ground black serpentinite stone and special brown clay, which is found only in Longpi village. The pots are manually shaped, polished, sun-dried and fired in a bonfire. The black color of Longpi ham is a result of reduction firing of the ware, while polishing the heated earthen pots with a local tree leaf right after firing gives them the beautiful shine. "Terracotta by Sachii" brings you this heritage pottery, functional as well as beautiful!
