Avid- An Essar Foundation Initiative presents 'A Foundation Course in Pottery' a two-day hands-on workshop with The Clay Company……An Experience to Remember!!
“Clay… infinitely sensitive, sensual, soft yet strong, it registers every thought and emotion. Working with clay is much like 'life' itself… one goes from a deep sense of control and power, engagement and even obsession with a piece until it is done, to the ultimate sense of detachment when one finally surrenders it to the supremacy of the kiln - accepting and celebrating the verdict that then emerges!”


Manisha Bhattacharya’s

Manisha Bhattacharya

Founder of The Clay Company

Manisha Bhattacharya’s art is being featured in an art exhibition in Delhi commemorating Rabindranath Tagore. Manisha was a Fulbright Arts Fellow in 2003-04 to Alfred University in New York. ‘Tagore: Lost and Found’ is being organized for the entire month of March, by the Art Bull Gallery in New Delhi. In Tagore’s engagement with nature there seems to be a persistent search for arcadia. Seduced by this celebration of nature, the artist resists the seduction, to locate another site where another hue of peace is sought, within the paradigm of humanism. In November 2012, Manisha had presented a solo exhibition, ‘Silent Symphony’, at the Stainless Gallery in New Delhi.
