Who says creativity is no child's play? The solo exhibition, Pots Platter and Me, by nine-year-old Avani Singhania displays her creativity in ceramic art and pottery making. For someone as young what could be her inspiration?
'When I see different creations in art books, I feel an urge to create them in my own way. This exhibition is the result of one year's effort, in doing just that,’ said Avani.
Avani has been learning pottery and ceramics arts under the guidance of Ela Mukherjee, a ceramic artiste. Coming from a family of art lovers and collectors, her interests stem from her own surroundings.
The nine-year-old is a budding artiste and a student of Vasant Valley School. She has also participated in pottery classes and camps at her school and recently held an exhibition of her work at the India Habitat Centre. An array of colourful tea pots, cups and saucers, decorative items shaped like hearts, ovals, pen-stands in ceramics greeted guests. The collection also included fish bowls, diyas, coffee mugs in bright colours to go hand in hand with the festive season.
