Veena pursued a formal degree and training as an architect in her initial years. She then decided to move on from architecture and follow other passions borrowing on the design sensibilities and the aesthetic sense she developed during those years. This journey, took her to Golden Bridge Pottery, Pondicherry where she trained in wood and Anagama fired ceramics. Veena has since then, had various opportunities to exhibit her work internationally and in India and also take part in various international residencies and symposiums.
Teaching being one of her main passions, she dove tails her time between teaching architecture at the University and moulding visions in clay at her studio in Pune.
Ruby Jhunjhunwala will invite visitors in her work-space for a studio visit under My city/My Art Participatory project.
Observing worker's in her father's glass manufacturing unit as a child, Ruby Jhunjhunwala was enchanted by the glass manufacturing process, by the dynamics of fire on the raw materials changing form and colour. Ruby holds a degree in Science and after meeting the internationally renowned ceramic artist Daniel Rhodes, she further studied glass blowing texhniques at Alfred University, New York. Her work and training includes collaboration with many renowned potters from "Delhi Blue" such as Gurchan Singhji and Mansimran Singji.
Continuing her engagement with 'order in chaos', her corpus of work in Indian Ceramics since the 1970s with a unique sense of aesthetics with a rustic tinge is truly inspiring. Her work is a jugalbandi between the self and the elements, where she allows the fire to completely take over and is rarely disappointed in the end results.
