For the artist being a ceramist is in many ways a testament to her love for art and nature. Always been drawn to earth – she finds Ceramics amazing for its use of five elements and considers it to be complete medium of expression. Shayonti says “My heart's escape is the ocean. Having witnessed some of its many wonders while scuba diving, I am intrigued by the fluidity of forms and textures seen underwater. They create the illusion of being in constant motion even though they may be perfectly still pieces of coral or shell. To bring that movement into my work is an on-going self-inflicted challenge”.
