Engineer by education and an Artist by vocation, Ridhima started her ceramic journey with Claystation in 2019 and fell in love with clay. She believes that even failure with clay is more complete and more spectacular than success with other forms of art, and it gives you the power to create something beautiful from literal dust and forge it in fire.
