About the artist

Astha Malu’s formal introduction to clay was a decade back, when she pursued her Bachelors in Sculptures (Fine Arts) at Rachana Sansad, Mumbai. She explored ceramic like an artist during bachelor’s, then as a faculty introduced this incredible material to architecture students at Kamla Raheja college of Architecture and later fashioned my understanding an Industrial Designer during my Master’s in Ceramic & Glass Design at National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. Astha’s focus lies in a pure amalgamation of earthy as well as green materials and that is what Pattterned Studio thrives to achieve.
