Profile Information

About Me
As a maker with a multicultural background; Indian, Kuwaiti and British I am passionate about exploring deeply into the many facets of my own cultures, traditions and identities. My greatest influences are the traditional potteries of India; the Islamic vessels and their forms, colours and surface textures.

My specialist material is clay and I use a combination of terracotta, brick and stoneware. I am interested in the tactile quality of my pieces developing work which projects a desire to handle and touch. I have created a multitude of surfaces such as crawling glazes which give dryness to the look and feel, oxides which create natural tones and describe the landscape and unglazed grogged, textured surfaces. When I work with textured clays I like the feel of roughness in my hands.
