Serving hot and white: Handmade ceramics take centerstage in Mumbai exhibition

As Restaurants are rigging up handmade pottery, with chefs and artists collaborating to match plates to particular meals, the exhibition at Gallery Artwork & Soul in Mumbai brings ceramicists from different regions of the country experimenting with distinct pottery styles.

The longing to have their meals served on crockery designed for a particular dish is becoming more popular among connoisseurs in the past few years since the resurgence of interest in handmade ceramic vessels. After the excruciating one-and-a-half years of lockdowns, each meal served on the tables is being set with celebratory, lovingly curated plates, cups, and saucers.

The event at Mumbai was attended by studio artists and ceramicists such as Amrita Dhawan, Ranjita Bora, chef turned ceramicist and Adil Author, an Auroville-based ceramicist and founder-partner at Mandala Pottery, who also co-curated the present, talks of an unprecedented surge in orders for the reason that pandemic-induced lockdown started to ease across the country. They display their exquisite creation of handmade tableware.

An array of tablewares were imbued with the murals like Koi Fish, made with gas-fired stoneware and porcelain cheese platter. For Élodie Alexandre and Reyaz Badaruddin, founders of Atelier Lalmitti in Andretta, close to Dharamshala, handmade pottery makes meals style higher. They showcased the Breakfast Set which consists of glazed pots done after the preliminary bisque firing and then suffused with blue oxides.

Exhibiting Kahvulti- a Turkish Breakfast, Bora, chef turned ceramicist articulates.” how every dish is hand-painted with motifs of paisley and vine specific to Turkey. All my work is handmade, high-fired, and food-safe.”

For Élodie Alexandre and Reyaz Badaruddin, founders of Atelier Lalmitti in Andretta, close to Dharamshala, handmade pottery makes meals style higher. Their exhibit, Breakfast Set, has the pots dipped in the glaze after the preliminary bisque firing and painted with blue oxides previous to the glaze firing.

Tablewares certainly have all the merits it takes to transcend the experience of a meal as they collectively manifest the household’s dining etiquettes, tastes, and craftsmanship.A well-made tea bowl can reveal many secrets and techniques on a monsoon day. It might supply consolation and solidarity.
