I really hope I am able to see you all at my 2 venues face to face! From 10th to 15th May, I will be at the St.Andrews Church Headington (Site 113)
with the Art at St.Andrews Group. The second venue is the beautiful historic St. Mary's Church in Chalgrove (Site 210) where I am among the eleven artists displaying 'Art@Chalgrove'
I will be exhibiting different styles from my last year's collection which are from smaller items like pendants to large platters inspired by the 'Elements of the Earth'
This year's unique collection is based on Japanese style of tea cups, bowls and platters with earthy, warm and organic tones.
If you happen to be curious about other works shown on my facebook , please do not hesitate to ask me.
''When you buy something from an artist, you are buying more than an object. You are buying days and hours of experimentation,
errors and trials. You are buying their moments of frustration and pure joy. You are buying a piece, but also their piece of heart and soul''
Support local artists!! Thank you
My latest Exhibition was at the Modern Art Oxford - (Sept 2020) 'Flow' . Video link - https://www.facebook.com/modartoxford/videos/36471612157144/
My Multi media Panel - ' Elements of Earth' was chosen by Oxford Art Society for its Annual Open Exhibition
My passion for all things clay gradually evolved after dabbling in brush strokes on bisque ware and porcelain using various glazes and techniques. I wanted more than that and started making my own and learning various techniques. And here, my journey with clay began.
I love creating organic forms, defying the normal structures of figurines, bowls or any other daily use items. I find that working with oxides, greens and blues give me a great sense of staying connected to the earth and water and my works emerge as grounded and minimal pieces that meld with nature. Groggy surfaces that contrast with smooth and rough crackle glazes.
My other works include platters, panels and bowls which are organic and irregular in shapes and textures, as commonly described in Japanese pottery – ‘perfection of the imperfection’. My latest experiment is on a clay carving technique called ‘kurinuki’ - making 'chawans' (japanese tea bowls) , and vases.
Experimenting with different clays and glazing techniques is how I learn from my own experiences and of course mistakes.
I am in a meditative state when I work with clay, and in line with this state of mind, I use my creativity in my kitchen too. I love to play with spices, its aroma, and the transformations. I enjoy both of my passions equally, as I am kneading, be it clay or flour, or mixing oxides or spices to my creations.
