Selected Works

Personal Statement

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 2020 I hope to exhibit my recent pre-occupations - a play with earthenware clay in all its dimensions; sculptures that celebrate the idea of the perfectly imperfect; versatile functional pots inviting you to celebrate food and folks; surface designs inspired by Kolam designs from Southern India.
