Artist Statement

Vanity Fair - As a child, I would look at my mother’s closest as a box of fantasy and mystery. It always intrigued me. Take a peek into a woman’s closet - the charisma, style and love shall behold you. This is a high relief stoneware work.
Message In A Bottle - is an attempt to capture the essence of the old Calcutta port and the British culture influence in a Ceramic bottle shaped work. Kolkata has been my muse from the day I first visited the city. It had been a constantly inspiring conundrum of heritage, culture, art and people. My love for doing relief work inspired me to portray this in this unique way.
Catch My Tail - The geometry and symmetry in nature and motion amazes me. This is an attempt to capture motion in stoneware and also an attempt to display the various colours and depictions of a simple fish.
Tweeterati - Nature always inspires. Using wheel and altering techniques, I like to create various animal forms in clay. Birds are one of my favourites. This is a pair of two birds that depict harmony, grace and love.
