Clay has a silent strength, a being….An ability to hold in its form a wordless expression of the artists thoughts.It is malleable, soft and yielding and at the same time possesses within the strength to withstand the greatest forces of nature.
Its very nature fascinates me.
Its silent strength is my inspiration.

I have had the good fortune to have the guidance of some wonderful teachers in my life. Words are not enough to express the gratitude I feel towards them for enriching my journey with clay and so much more.....

Shri Ram Kumar Manna in Calcutta-I started training with him in 1989 and it is under his guidance that I had my first solo exhibition of terracotta sculpture at the Birla Academy of Fine Arts in 1995.

In Delhi,under the guidance of Shri Devi Prashad I started working with stoneware on the wheel, learning more about kilns and glazing.This enabled me to finally set up my own studio in 1999 and I work from there ever since.

I am experimenting with Alternative firing techniques - Naked Raku and different kinds of Saggar firing.

The journey continues......
