Dancingpots - contemporary ceramics inspired by dance, India and life. This year the work includes new sculptural pieces in addition to functional pots.
As my original training is in Indian classical dance, my approach and aesthetics are very much informed by the dancer in me. My pots aim to marry elegance in form and colour with functionality. I have always been attracted by the ‘hand-made’ and the thoughts, emotions, knowledge, culture, skill and imagination it holds. I am in my element when I am making something, whether it is a dance movement or a clay pot. In 2019 I hope to exhibit my recent pre-occupations - Functional pots inspired by the clean form and lustre of traditional South Indian bronze kitchenware; sculptures that celebrate the idea of the transient, incomplete and marginalia.
