A Mumbai-based art studio by Vidhi Dedhia, Studio Vida retails ceramic pop art and tableware and offers pottery workshops. The collections include ceramic representations of products from our childhood and everyday life that can be used as serveware or art pieces. “Within the four walls of my quaint studio, imagination, creativity, and sometimes memories take life and form. That’s why I thought of calling it Vida, Spanish for life. When I started, I created items in my studio as a form of self-expression. Knowing that they have found homes is a wonderful feeling. And that’s why today I’ve established Vida for other like-minded souls to come and create and perhaps take back the same amount of tranquillity that pottery has given me,” states Vidhi Dedhia, Founder of Studio Vida.

It is unpretentious and tells a story similar to yours and mine – of impermanence and transience, the aesthetics being rooted in the Japanese concept called Wabi Sabi that finds beauty in the imperfect,” concludes Kritika Soni, Ceramist and Founder of Kara Sabi.
