ANOTHER LAND


Another Land is a project exploring the sculptural agency of nature and how materials are formed and constantly reformed. As one of the most elemental of materials in earth, Clay is matter as well as a process.

PRIYANKA SHARMA


Priyanka Sharma is a recent graduate of the Royal College of Art. Priyanka originally studied product design before completing her MA in Ceramics and Glass. She was awarded the Commonwealth Scholarship to study at the RCA for her work with vernacular materials and craft practices from the Indian subcontinent.

Priyanka’s practice emerges from her engagement with materials and their unique lives. She is known for her tactile approach, playing with texture, techniques, and natural materials.

Priyanka along with Dushyant Bansal set up Studio Raw Material in 2016. Raw Material is an ongoing exploration of geology in terms of material and processes. The studio and workshop are based in the desert plains of western India.
