My journey with pottery

Posted 8/19/2019

Since its launch in December 2016, LivingClay has been a reflection of my passion for the ceramic craft and my desire to create memorable moments with friends and family around the table. I firmly believe that beauty has the power to change moods and start conversations and bring joy and happiness. A beautiful dinner set that I have and which once belonged to my grandmother sparks joy even today. It still brings back memories of happy times shared with the family. And these stories are always passed down to the next generation. How beautiful can this sort of an experience be! 

So there started my curation and LivingClay was born. I have always wanted to curate tableware that would liven up a conversation, set the mood for a memorable meal, be proudly used and handed down all embellished with culinary stories and stories of those intangible moments that linger on in our memory!

It was this year that I came across this wonderful course in pottery offered by Slow pottery in Bangalore. I couldn't resist taking the plunge and joining and today I understand these beautifully crafted ceramic objects ven better. I love the feel of clay and potter's wheel. Wedging and throwing, trimming and creating these pieces of functional pottery have become part of my everyday!

Working with clayhas taught me that time, patience and passion are the invaluable ingredients to create beauty and happiness!
