CERAMICS BY SHWETA MANSINGHKA
Shweta uses the intriguing process of saggar firing for creating her work. In this technique, each piece goes through many purifying stages to bring out the inherent shine of the clay. It then goes through its final test to withstand the enormous thermal shock as it’s taken out of a hot raku kiln to room temperature. The fire and smoke leave natural markings on the naked body of the burnished clay, transforming each piece into something completely unique. On display at Stylefile is her collection comprising of Silent Chimes, Prayer Wheels & Fruits Unique.
