Earth, dirt, and clay speak to the very core of our beings and can spark the most fundamental creative energy. Some of the oldest man-made objects known are made from clay and fragments of pottery found at ancient archaeological sites like Dholaveera, Mohenjodaro and Harappa are decisive evidence as to the levels of development of the people who lived there. Since then man’s engagement with clay has been enormous in scale and in technical depth. Ever since, every aspect of our living involves clay, be it the food we consume or the electricity we use, from the beautiful home floorings to the outer skins of space shuttles.
In recent times, ceramic arts have carved a very special niche in the cultural wall of the planet and our country. The medium of ceramics achieved another high last year by India witnessing its first Indian Ceramics Triennale at Jawahar Kala Kendra in Jaipur, showcasing large-scale sculptures and installations from Indian and international artists.
