Hello! My name is Sheetal Mehta. I am a studio potter making small-batch pottery in Scarsdale, NY.
I make pots in a fast world full of swipes, taps, scrolls, and frenzies.
It takes several weeks to produce a piece of pottery, with patience, care, and meticulous attention at each stage, to get a good quality piece.
When I have my coffee in a handmade mug, I know the intention of its design and construction to make it user-friendly and beautiful.
When I use a handmade vase in my home, I know the mark of the potter’s hands will add to the beauty of the flowers it will hold.
As a form of art, handmade pottery can convey meaning, evoke feelings, bring memories, and become part of a routine.
With all their tactility, handmade pots resemble life.
Every day, these pots give me a reason to pause, relax, and soak in the feelings each one has the power to evoke.
They make those moments special!
