Priya first trained informally in the late 1970s, in high-fire porcelain. Soon after, she set up her own studio, to make wheel-thrown mid-fire porcelain and stoneware.
Throwing and working on brushwork and sgraffito designs are her pottery loves. Years and workshops later, Priya still finds much to explore. She is currently building on work she began while part of FUSION’s 2016-17 Creative Directions program to bring colour to her pieces.
Priya’s work was among those selected for the 2018 Kawartha Potters Guild juried exhibition at the Art Gallery of Peterborough. Creating functional pieces that are a pleasure to hold, look at, and use continues to be her primary goal.
Only a few more sleeps now until the sale and we know Priya and the rest of our potters are in a frenzie to get everything finished. We look forward to seeing you next weekend!
