Tell us about journey with clay
I studied painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Baroda, and have a post-graduate diploma from the National Institute of Design in Ceramics. My early training was with Jyotsana Bhatt before I moved to Auroville, where I apprenticed with Ray Meeker and Deborah Smith of Golden Bridge Pottery.
I was an artist in residence with well-known ceramic artists like Jane Perryman and Ruthanne Tudball in the United Kingdom. While I like to participate in workshops and group shows, I have also done a few solo shows and have curated a few ceramic shows in Auroville and Chennai.
My various experimental works with clay continue at my studio in Auroville.
