Garima Tripathi

Garima Tripathi (b. 1987) works in sculptures, public art installations and prints. Garima learned pottery from traditional potters in Dharavi, Mumbai and sculpting in the US at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She completed her MFA from Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford, UK. Garima’s work addresses gendered struggles in India and the possibility of agency within that system. Her practice is to heal the gendered wounds of familial neglect, and/or unrecognized emotional/physical labour. She questions the notions of home, rest, and access to play through intimate objects from the everyday such as doormats or pan scrubbers as well as large-scale installations inspired by the Banyan Trees. Through her installations, Garima aims to create ‘dream spaces’ that make the invisible visible and the inaudible loud. These dream spaces are both a venture into courageous fantasies and messy nightmares. She has created permanent installations for Harvard University’s ceramic studio, Anneberg Kulturpark in Denmark and IIT Bombay, India.

Kshitija Mitter’s artwork is derived from her appreciation for the metaphorical nature of clay in relation to the human consciousness. She explores this duality of fragility and strength in her creations and imbues the complexities of the human experience as a part of her artistic narrative.

An engineer by education, Kshitija is trained at Golden Bridge Pottery, Pondicherry. She is actively engaged in the independent potters community and has been a participant at various groups shows in India and recently in Jingdezhen, China. She has curated and organised “A Sorted Ceramics” in Bengaluru and is the organiser for The Bengaluru Potters Market.

She is actively involved in inclusion programs involving neuro divergent children and adults.

She currently works out of her studio in Pune.

Ruddhi graduated in Business Management and worked in an MNC in 2015, only to realize that her potential lies in creative mediums of drawing and clay. In 2018, she studied wheel throwing at Golden Bridge Pottery, Pondicherry. On her return to Pune, she set up her studio ‘Koorm’ and simultaneously has been pursuing sculpture in clay and has been making functional ceramic products that overlap art and design. She revels in interaction between hands, eyes and intimate feel of clay when handbuilding or wheel throwing.
