Combining Art & Luxury
There’s something very fulfilling about creating with our own hands, Be it a garment you’ve tailored, a picture you’ve painted, or a cake you’ve baked.
It’s a contentment that comes from the deepest, most basic level of yourself.
A few years ago, as a mother and homemaker, I found all my energies devoted towards managing my home and raising my young family.
The part of me that found beauty in nature, the part of me that loved art with a passion, the part of me that wanted to bring grace and elegance into the world was fading away.
That was when pottery found me.As soon as I started pottery I knew it was what I wanted to do.
Through pottery I started finding back the creative parts of me that was getting lost in the madness of day to day routine.
Pottery gave me a profound sense of calm and immense satisfaction.
I learnt pottery from Mubarrakka at ‘Touch of clay’ in Dubai and then went on to do a short course at Andretta pottery.
From the time I have started to learn pottery, I try to meet potters in other cities and online, to see and gain inspiration and improvise on my work.
But the most valuable learning for me started when I set up my own home studio.
Be it nature or history, current affairs or family, anything could inspire a new piece.
I got so deeply involved in the process of learning, introspecting and creating that each article I created was unique and thus beautiful.
