Sculpting and contouring bends and shadows and ever-changing curves and profiles with each slight turn to view. People divide pottery into two main categories. Utilitarian pottery; designed for use in food or drink. Art pottery: that which can still have use but also becomes decorative for living spaces. And then, works such as Aarti's. Fine Art! This, hers, is no longer pottery. Aarti is an artist of Fine Art, sculpture, in the media of clay/terracotta. One can see the time, the eye, the hand of Aarti in every works of her, without seeing her name.
