THE RIGHT MOULD
SULAGNA GHOSH, 31 FOUNDER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR, SIENNA, KOLKATA facebook.com/SiennaStore
Sienna started as a studio cum workshop in Shantiniketan, Kolkata run by Sulagna Ghosh’s mother, architect Shanta Ghosh and sculptor Prabhas Sen. When Sulagna came on board she took the designs to the city. Sienna, the store opened in 2008.
USP Handmade and hand thrown pottery with non toxic glazes is their calling card. “Our products often feature plant or bird motifs. We like the natural rustic vibe,” she says. They use a combination of china clay and terracotta or red clay in different proportions on the potter’s wheel, pinching or moulding by hand, or on a press machine.
BUY THE WAY They retail plates, bowls, mugs, coasters, fondue pots, trays, terracotta urns, tiles and bath ware (soap dishes and basins). Sienna can also create customised murals and nameplates.
