Adil Writer on art
Although a practising studio potter today, I see Rakhee Kane as a painter at heart, looking at the forms she makes as canvases. She creates depth and varied moods with rhythmic lines, textures and contrasting colours, using to advantage clay slips that flash in the fire of her wood-burning kiln. She is currently inspired by lotus seed-pods — large matte-black objects that have the power to take over a room. Her interest in Indian iconography shows up as sketches on clay of motifs like the shankh, chakra, gada and padma.
