I am a Gurgaon based ceramist whose journey in clay started at Delhi Blue Pottery in 2008 and I am currently working under the mentor-ship of another senior ceramic artist Rahul Kumar. I was awarded at 17th All India Studio Pottery Exhibition, New Delhi in 2011.

My work is an attempt to liberate both my imagination and the medium (the clay) from its underlying sense of stillness. It takes inspiration from the ‘invisible’ life present in Nature in both the living and the so-called ‘non-living’ to give the artworks a sense of energy. We know the Nature’s tool kit has no straight lines, perfect circles or perfectly smooth surfaces. Similarly in the works one would find a play with the surface textures, convulsing form, and colours to invoke a sense of movement and intrigue in their appearance. They speak to each one of us differently, thereby invoking a different reaction in return. What appears inert and motionless from a distance is meant to offer a new perspective from close quarters.
