Mudita Bhandari

Born in 1978, Indore, India, Mudita Bhandari did her Bachelors in Fine Arts, specializing in Ceramics from Kala Bhawan, Viswabharati, Santiniketan (W.B). She then went on to do her Masters in Fine Arts in Ceramic Sculpture from Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S.University, Vadodara, Inspired by the use of clay in the folk tradition of India, she began working extensively in terracotta. She enjoys the tactile and porous quality of low temperature clay, which gives her the scope of playing with smoke firing affects as well as using different slips and sometimes raku fire them, creating a raw and rugged surface. She uses pinching, slab as well as wheel thrown techniques to build her forms. Art for her is an expression of how she perceives her existence in context to the ever changing world around. This awareness of space translates itself in her work as well.
