The designer story
As an architect turned potter, I am drawn towards making a pot on the wheel – forms that bring out the softness of the medium and being able to alter it and play with a simple shape. At Kalimann Studio, we make high fired stoneware, mostly functional pots that are subtly playful and understated. Our products are wheel thrown and hand built, and we try to use local materials as slips and part of glazes. Most of the pots are made on the wheel, for which I use a light coloured stoneware body that comes from Gujarat, India.The fine print
