Vallari Harshwal

Material: Ceramics | Location: Berkshire
I am a ceramic designer and maker based in Reading, Berkshire. I make small batch objects, tableware and lights in my studio located in the scenic grounds of Yeldall Manor. Clay is my forever muse and medium.

I am drawn towards the unexplored aspect of a material and its processes and lean towards being non-conformist in my visual aesthetics. Handcrafting timeless, simple objects which stand the test of time brings me joy. My work is an essence of my Indian heritage juxtaposed with my life in England.

Conceptually, at one end I enjoy the visual aspect of illustrating moments of my life. This line of work is translated as surface design on wheel thrown and slab rolled homeware and tableware, crafted to compliment the illustrations I draw.

At the other end is the need to mull, think, absorb to push the so-called limitations of clay as a material to make objects and sculptural lights.
