The uncertainty of results is always thrilling (for me) in my work.., from the arbitrary combining of varied materials in unmeasured amounts for everything from coloured clay bodies and engobes, to slips and glazes. Abstraction in my work will always play with the convention of the vessel as a metaphor for the body, - the challenge is to see if the unorthodoxy, the naiveté and the risks show through....and ultimately balance within the softer focus of functional pottery."
“With this great truth as the background, as a constant support, ... that we are witnessing the birth of a new world – ...that we can participate in it, ...that we can become it.." (from Conversations with the Mother)
Adil is an architect from Mumbai who graduated in Urban Design from the University Of Houston, Texas. After thirteen years in the fields of interior refurbishing and architecture in Bombay and California, he decided to "take a break" and study ceramics at the Golden Bridge Pottery in Pondicherry. The rest may not necessarily be history, but…. He presently resides in Aspiration and is a “full-time potter” at Mandala Pottery in Auroville, doing his balancing act between production and studio pottery.
