I work with architects and interior designers to create ceramic murals and installations for hotels and residential spaces; sculptural work for private collections and exhibitions; and my own range of boutique handcrafted tableware retailed through my studio The Pottery Lab,” says ceramic artist Rekha Goyal, a graduate of Sir JJ School of Art, Mumbai.
Choosing clay: Goyal set up her studio in 1999. “I gravitated towards clay or ceramics, as it allowed me to combine my artistic expression with scientific rigour and because it is such a challenging medium to work with,” she says.
Size doesn’t matter: Goyal’s portfolio is as diverse as it is attractive. She has made both large pieces such as a 70ft ceramic mural for a hotel and smaller ones such as 7cm tea bowls.
