Renuka Sastri: I make my work in my home studio and at the Crealdé School of Art. I’ve been experimenting with burnishing, leaving the exteriors unglazed so that the clay body feels almost leathery and very tactile. Instagram: @sastri_ceramics
All Carved Up
These two bowls were carved sitting in the sun next to a hot pink blooming bougainvillea, and the birds chirping in the Florida spring, just before the clouds of pollen came raining down. They remind me of fine tapestry work, the kind you only find in antique stores now, and are almost as soft to the touch. The glaze, Crealdé’s own Blue Hare’s Fur, shows natural variations in color. I hope you enjoy having these as much as I enjoyed making them.
Both Bowls: 7” W x 3.5” H
