Romilla Batra

Biography to Display: 

1937 Born

EDUCATION

1956 Political Science and History, St. Bede's College, Shimla, India

 

Romilla Batra's porcelain series includes both functional and non-functional forms that represent her personal experiences with the natural environment, particularly the landscape in the Bay Area.

Her porcelain works are primarily hand built in press molds and inlaid with porcelain colored with oxides. After the first firing, the pieces are finished with a painted oxide on the exterior, partially removed with a sponge. The interiors of the pots washed with a clear glaze and, then, reduction fired. Many of works are made in a series of successive works based on a single design idea.
