Terracotta, Terra cotta or Terra-cotta is a clay-based unglazed
ceramic. Its uses include vessels, water and waste water pipes and
surface embellishment in building construction, along with
sculpture such as the Terracotta Army and Greek terracotta
figurines. The term is also used to refer to items made out of this
material and to its natural, brownish orange color, which varies
considerably. In archaeology and art history, "terracotta" is often
used of objects not made on a potter's wheel, such as figurines,
where objects made on the wheel from the same material, possibly
even by the same person, are called pottery; the choice of term
depending on the type of object rather than the material. Plain
unglazed pottery is often also called terracotta.
