These incredibly delicate paintings on paper and porcelain are the work of Sydney-based artist Niharika Hukku. Her love of nature is apparent in her amazing work creating natural scenes that range from fluffy white clouds to schools of swimming fish. She tells us a bit about herself on an interview on Lost at E Minor:
â€œI have a degree in fine arts specialising in painting. I fell into a career in illustration very early on and continued to work for over a decade before I shifted my focus to ceramics. Though I enjoyed my job as a commercial artist, I felt the need to do something personal and organic and also wanted to spend more time with clay.â€
â€œMy most treasured experience would be my first time on a potterâ€™s wheel. It was exciting and I was impatient to make tall beautiful forms immediately. I still have the first piece I threw on the wheel. While it was small and imperfect, I think it beautiful for it reminds me of all the hope I had for myself in learning something new.â€
