Along with a full time job as Business Analyst, Renilda finds her rhythm, her calm, her being, in the naturistic world of pottery. Her journey with ceramics began at Claystation 2.5 years back from just a mere hobby, pottery soon became her purpose and sense of fulfillment.
She believes no matter how experienced one can be in the world of pottery, clay does not necessarily respond to you at all times. This has taught her to approach the medium with utmost patience, understanding and dedication. The personality and characteristics of ceramics has helped bring out the colors and the creativity within her, the same approach is what she tries imparting within her teaching style.
