BENGALURU: Two potters from the city —   Tyagarajan and Shubha Raghavan — will be showcasing their artworks today and tomorrow at Studio Potters Market 2016 in the city.

Shubha Raghavan took to pottery recently.  “My journey with clay started in early 2015 when I took a course at Clay Station. I took an instant liking to clay and continued with the advance courses,” she says

She uses stoneware and earthenware clay and tries to keep her work simple and practical, yet aesthetic.

“I feel pottery speaks to you and breathes unlike plastic or metal. I try to ask people to embrace all colours and forms through my work,” she adds.

The two artists say infrastructure and raw materials are not easily available in the city for their artwork.

The raw materials are imported from other cities.
