These trial pieces are emerged when I was searching for the stepwell structures of Western India. Their dual nature of providing water and being a place for social gatherings and religious ceremonies mainly for women, attracts me to think about them. I may further this subject matter later in my ceramic work.

I love experimenting with stair forms. Staircases fascinate me both literally and metaphorically. Here I am playing with their sculptural quality.
