Matsya – A Journey Into Traditional Indian Crafts

Artist and potter Neha Gandhi is a lover of crafts. Even as a child she loved playing with colours, and later graduated from the well appreciated Sir J.J school of Fine Arts, Mumbai. She soon packed her bags and was off to Pondicherry to learn studio pottery at the Golden Bridge Pottery.

Neha later worked at the National Institute Of Design, Ahmedabad under the faculty development programme in the ceramic department.

After the earth quake of 26th Jan 2001, Neha embarked on a journey to Kutch, Gujarat where she was exposed to the rural culture, the rich traditions and crafts and there was no looking back since then. Neha continued working with NGOs & fair trade organizations in Ahmedabad & Mumbai, gaining more experience in the craft sector and building a very strong relationship with craftsmen and NGOs. Understanding the need, she decided to build a bridge between the NGOs, craftsmen and the urban masses. Hence, her brand Matsya was born.

Here are a few of her designs from Matsya:




Currently based in Mumbai, Neha continues to express her creativity in arts & crafts through Matsya.
