My piece is inspired by : Bishnupur Gharana Musicians:Bishnupur is a city and a municipality of Bankura district in the state of West Bengal, India . It is famous for its terracotta temples built by the Malla rulers, historic Radha Krishna temples built during 1600–1800 CE and the Baluchari sarees.There is a school of Hindustani music born here and hence called Bishnupur Gharana. This style is said to have influenced the Rabindra Nath Tagore’s singing. The museum in the town has a complete section on the well-known members of this Gharana who were popular during the last two centuries. But a huge new auditorium in the town is evidence of the musical orientation of this town. It is also evident in its Dhokra and Terracotta arts where deities and common people are often depicted playing musical instruments.Goddess Durga is a major deity in Hinduism. She is worshipped as a principal aspect of the mother goddess Devi and is one of the most popular and widely revered among Indian divinities. She is associated with protection, strength, motherhood, destruction and wars.Goddess Durga symbolizes the divine forces (positive energy) known as divine shakti (feminine energy/ power) that is used against the negative forces of evil and wickedness. She protects her devotees from evil powers and safeguards them.Terracotta Jewellery is evidently made from the soil and literally translates to ‘Baked Earth’. The natural clay is baked which is why it achieves the reddish-brown colour. Terracotta may be glazed or unglazed piece of ceramic. This falls under the category of handmade jewellery and has a very rustic earthen feel to it. The Terracotta Jewelry is adorned and decorated with numerous colours, beads and decorative items.
I’m from Slovakia. I have a great husband, two children and a lazy cat. I am a creative artist and an interior designer, I paint on textiles, and cake decorating is my hobby for about 5 years. I won a gold medal and GRAND PRIX 2020 at the international competition in Poland and 1st place at Cake International Virtual Edition 2020. I love colours.
I am Madhubhashini Yatagama a self-taught, passionate and committed designer cake artist. I was born and raised in Sri Lanka. I originally started out in Botswana, Africa as an Analyst programmer; but gave up my professional career and decided to direct my efforts to a more creative direction. I channeled my passion for art through the medium of cakes and became a designer cake artist. I had developed my skills mostly through practice and experimenting with the medium of cake making. As the years went on, I had improved my craft, learnt from other professional cake artists and even gained national notoriety.
Among the many ideas which came to my mind regarding the terracotta collaboration, I chose terracotta jewelry as it is very unique, authentic, aesthetically pleasing, handmade, eco friendly and colorful. I opted out of replicating a design seen on the internet, and decided to make my own jewelry with the theme “flame and fire”.
My childhood ambition was to be a jewelry designer, so this project brought me great joy to design them through an edible medium.
Terracotta jewelry follows repeating patterns that has a simple, elegant and geometrical look that suits nearly any occasion.

Presenting my humble attempt; a depicton of Molela art on my piece.

It dries to a grey colour which after firing turns terracotta red / brown or even a lustrous black finish( if smoke- fired in a closed kiln).

I particularly love working with coloured ganache for frosting, and strive towards getting a fondant cake finish using ganache, because I believe that it is a tastier medium with comparatively lesser hardworkI take online classes as well which include basic baking , coloured ganache techniques and many moreMy new interest these days is making wafer paper flowers. I enjoy making these beauties, which has no resting and drying time. These are really quick to make and take the look of the cake up by a notch or two .

I like making miniatures with all of their screws, bolts and nuts. My most successful year, cake decorating- wise, is 2019 when I won a gold medal and first place in my category at the Cake International On Tour London and during the same year – 2 golden medals at Cake International Birmingham.I work as a pastry chef in a French macarons boutique .
