The Gift of India

Ceramics

Aryan Sethi

Embracing an art form iconic to Indian art, through my wheel-thrown pots I have aimed to immerse my audience into an authentic, sensory experience of India, a country where culture, religion, architecture, colours, and language vastly variate throughout. 

I have arranged my pots into North, East, South and West India to visually represent different aspects of the country (such as temple, landscape, and language). I have used different carving and surface treatment techniques to create textures and coloured glaze. Thus, my audience are enabled to draw comparisons between different regions to celebrate India as a whole and appreciate its rich heritage.
