"One could spend a lifetime working with clay and still be surprised by it which is both challenging and motivating", is what Rakshita Hiremath believes. She enjoys teaching pottery to children and grown ups alike, thus hoping to initiate them into exploring the endless possibilities with the art.
She makes pieces that are functional and decorative using wheel throwing as well as hand building techniques. Experimentation with different surface decoration methods such as slips, underglazes and wax resists adds an element of fun to her work. She is an engineer by training and an artist by choice. After working in the corporate world for a decade, a calling to explore the medium of clay brought her to Claystation, where she learnt and has been teaching.
