A down-to-earth sculptor
Vruddhi is a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Sculpture) from the M.S. University, Baroda and has been actively pursuing pottery for the last five years. She is a nature enthusiast, passionate about sustainable practices.
Vruddhi feels that pottery connects her with nature, as all the four elements of earth, water, fire, and air, are a part of the art. Even clay can teach important lessons of life, such as being adaptable in any situation, she believes. To Vruddhi, pottery is meditative and rejuvenating, and she strives for others to experience the same through her sessions.
Currently based out of Ahmedabad, Vruddhi is a practicing Visual Artist, and takes pottery sessions at Studio Indigo.
gift your hands the joy of creation
If you have ever squished a ball of wet clay, you already know why it is so therapeutic. Thump, pat, dab, roll. Clay is so mouldable! And the satisfaction of working with it is immense – physical, mental, and emotional. The activity engages our sensory and motor skills, as well as our imagination.
Touch is the first sense to develop, when a baby is still in the womb. No wonder, clay is a primeval mode of expression, and the art of making utensils was one of the earliest arts that originated before the neolithic period.
In this workshop, learn the hand building techniques of pinching, coiling, and slab making for creating objects with clay. Using basic hand tools, design and shape articles from pots and pans to animal figurines. Prepare for a multisensory experience as you indulge with nature’s two most important elements – earth and water. Why be satisfied with modelling clay, when you can have the real one?
