Clay Art Modelling and Sculpting
"Sculpting in clay is to the sculptor as the paper is to the painter. In the delicate clay, the genius of the sculptor is found in its most extreme virtue and truth."
Hi, I am Aarti Gupta Bhadauria
a terracotta sculptor
When we are emotional, we feel different waves inside us, I show the different forms of these waves through my sculptures. Be it National or International, my Terracotta Artwork has received wide appreciation and acceptance from connoisseurs of art across the world and many prizes.
I wanted to do something different in life, so I decided to choose my own destination, and started working with terracotta. Terracotta (Baked Earth) is the oldest and ancient medium for art, and I have chosen it to promote it with modern ideas. I want each part of the world to know about my artwork. With self-developed style, it takes me three to four months to make one sculpture, which speaks life, emotions, and feelings. When I work, I get lost in the clay and does not feel my physical existence. My work is my soul.

Her sculptures are rhythmic, abstract, and reflective waves of feelings and emotions in various forms. One cannot stop without looking all the angles, each angle depicts a different image.

"People divide pottery into two main categories. Utilitarian pottery; designed for use in food or drink. Art pottery: that which can still have use but also becomes decorative for living spaces. And then, works such as Aarti's. Fine Art! This, hers, is no longer pottery. Aarti is an artist of Fine Art, sculpture, in the media of clay/terracotta. One can see the time, the eye, the hand of Aarti in every works of her, without seeing her name." - by Scott Lorenz (Senior Artist, USA)
