Imprints of Earth are mother-daughter duo Bhaggie and Shakti. They are ceramicists who are passionate about creativity as a healing force. Ceramics has given them the time and space to express and rediscover themselves artistically, to be mindful, and to find joy again after a significant personal loss.
Bhaggie was one of Manchester Craft and Design Centre's Hands On Bursary winners in 2021. The duo love to handbuild and throw advanced carefully-considered forms before relinquishing them to the uninhibited flames of the fire. In this way, ceramics becomes a metaphor for life; recognising when to let go, and finding beauty in the ashes of the unexpected.
Their work exposes the chaos of human emotions; juxtaposing raw, organic pit-fired and Raku work with playfully glazed, spirited pieces. Join Bhaggie and Shakti on this adventure of contradiction, as they rise from the ashes on this beautifully messy,occasionally painful, yet always immensely-joy filled journey we call life.
