Ceramic Sculpture. Textured black stoneware with a dark black unglazed finish. Surface reveals slight sheen | 2021
A transition from function to fiction is a narrative thread across “Berlin Trials,” a new series of ceramic objects from artist Latika Nehra. In creating the sculptural works, Nehra begins with a traditional coil technique, which she then builds from to create a contemporary interpretation, leaving the works primarily unglazed. The resulting work presents a progression in the artist’s body of work as the oeuvre moves away from functional vessels and deftly into the field of sculpture.

Framing & Mounting
Latika is a self-taught ceramic artist whose process is grounded in traditional techniques and infusing them within a contemporary interpretation. Primarily using the coiling technique, she crafts objects that are personable by modeling bodily gestures and natural textures. Form is dominant across the mostly unglazed works, which have been featured inVogue India and Verve Magazine.
