Ceramics

When I was in my final year at Punjab University, one of my professors had a potter's kick wheel made for the students. I took a spin on it and discovered the entire experience to be extremely therapeutic and enjoyable. It combines arts, crafts and science together with the beauty of imagination I found that it allowed a person to keep on developing aesthetically, while using the logic of chemistry."

Ishrat Suhrwady is inspired by the richness of her Pakistani roots and the pottery being created by artists in those communities. Her connection to her heritage and interest in science has compelled her to develop her own body of clay and glazes by incorporating natural materials from different regions and parts of Pakistan.
