She’s a small wonder!
She is just 10. But by the touch of her hand she can spell magic on a lump of clay. And with fire and colour she adds expressions.
Avani Singhania just wrapped up her exhibition of ceramic works at the second edition of the her show titled- Pots, Platter And Me Returns at the Experimental Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre.
A student from Vasant Valley School, Avani followed her passion for pottery at the nascent age of 6- years under the guidance of Ela Mukherjee, a famous ceramic artist and a winner of Charles Wallace awards.
Enthusiastically explaining her works, Avani said, 'I love experimenting with colours and shapes. I first got to know about pottery in a school exhibition and found it very fascinating. My parents were very supportive and sent me various workshops to learn more about pottery. During one of the workshops I met my teacher Ela Mukherjee and she has been my inspiration ever since.'
At the exhibition she displayed an array of colourful tea pots, cups and saucers, decorative items shaped like hearts, ovals and pen-stands in ceramics. The collection also includes bowls, coffee mugs, diyas, candle stands in bright colours to go hand in hand with the festive season.
Avani has been learning pottery since 2009 and has already put up one exhibition in 2011 in Mumbai and once in Delhi in 2012. She has been taking regular classes and wishes to explore more about the art.
Age is just a number for Avani as she stunned visitors at her exhibition with her wonderful talent of shapes and colour.
