CT Manoj is the founder of SHRISHTI MURALS & TERRACOTTA, who is an artisan community that has rehabilitated itself from the brink of losing its terracotta craft, and is now redefining his heritage handicraft for the modern world. SHRISHTI is located in Mampetta, a neighborhood near Mukkam in Kozhikode district of Kerala. Today SHRISHTI can claim that it has facilitated a lot of product range on various designs including wall murals, landscaping products, ornaments, Kitchenware, garden amenities, furniture, office ware, wall masks and other accessories. Mr. Manoj states that the clay is a material which would protect the environment and eventually overall sustainability. To those of us in the general public, to whom terracotta is just unpainted pottery, this is revelatory and thought provoking.
Manoj says his mission began as a search for to help his own society, identity, authenticity and self-refurbishment. It was a voyage prompted after he owned his graduate, a sense of loss of essential cultural sensibilities. It concluded in the formation of SHRISHTI, engaging his community of potters whose craft was in its death throes, which helped them to realize their embryonic creativity and skills, whose products are sought after.
Manoj believes that formal education sets up a conflict between a distinctive impulse and forced learning process. It is this restoration of learning from his challenging situations that he believes is his true accomplishment, and the stimulation and revitalization a consequence there
