The Artisans

Art for us is functional (well, mostly!). We strive to create pottery that’s all things nice, evokes nostalgia, puts a smile on your face and make the food and drink more delicious.

For me, pottery started as an attempt to understand Sharanya when he talked about his great passion. I am mostly self-taught and whatever I learnt is from my teacher, Sharanya :)

A couple of classes in the local community pottery studio later, I was hooked. I love how the whirring mechanical motion calms me, and I enjoy the high in waiting for the glazed pieces to get out of the kiln. I love the look and feel of naked clay in my hands and all my pieces reflect that.

I've always had interests other than my day job and I love making things with my hands - I used to be a Food Blogger and a photography enthusiast. I make my own Kombucha and now, I am learning how to grow Bonsai plants. I also have plans to start tailoring at least some of my clothes and making my own wooden bowls & small wooden furniture.

In the year 2022, I took a break for 10 months from my full time work to hone my skills on the potters wheel to create tableware that can be part of your daily ritual - like the quiet morning cup of coffee that you savour in solitude or sharing a meal with someone over a conversation.

I spent most of my career working on creating user experiences that are - 'functional' :-) . While these are two diametrically different industries, the fundamentals of user experience remain unchanged, which is to hold and use something that's aesthetic, simple, intuitive and familiar.


I derive inspiration from my middle-class South Indian upbringing and the stories I heard growing up.

I like to dabble in music, read poetry and ride my Enfield in the Western Ghats.
