About

Handcrafted with love: Ceramics and jewelry

In 2011, I began a venture to showcase the clay work produced by my sister, Ranjita Bora, who is an artist based out of Pondicherry, India. I also interacted with a few other potters during the time. I was already playing around with beads and jewelry making, and also developed a keen interest in the medium of clay due to my association.

I took a few starter classes in jewelry and clay and self learnt using tutorials online. I began my clay journey at Clay Station in Bangalore, and continued in Manassas, Virginia and then at Higher Fire, in San Jose. I've done workshops with polymer clay artist Cindy Silas and ceramic artists, Dan Dermer, Jamie Meador, Linda Mau, Sam Taylor and Mark Shapiro. I attended Penland in 2016 for an intensive wood-fired ceramics session.

I make both ceramic jewelry and other functional pieces for the home, garden and outdoor spaces. I especially enjoy playing with textures, sgrafitto, carving, altered forms and color and sometimes get carried away. I like the idea of treating the surface as a canvas since I've always been interested in color and design. And now, I get to implement a lot of these ideas onto surfaces that I create.

I hope you'll take the time to browse around and enjoy some of my work.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I do take customized orders but it largely depends on the expectations. This would proceed only after making sure that both parties are satisfied with all the conversations. I don't make exact replicas of anything. To discuss a personalized order, please send me a direct message.

Sizing details

Due to the nature of ceramics and clay, it is very difficult to calculate exact sizing. Please note that products will vary by a few cms depending on shrinkage rates.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I can gift wrap items at an additional cost to cover the material. However, please add a note when ordering so I can add it to the shipping. When packaging items, I take extreme care and use a lot of paper, shredded paper and bubble wrap. Please do try and reuse the bubble wrap for other purposes at home so it does not land up in the landfills.

Wholesale availability

I am open to doing some of the pieces in larger numbers. Especially planters, earring holders/organizers, doggie/kitty bowls, return gifts for kids parties, weddings etc. Please message me to discuss. Please note that these take time and I suggest starting the process at least 2 months before the date when you need the actual product.
