Etsy Favorites: Cynthia Vardhan Ceramics and a Giveaway!

We're back for another installment of my Etsy Favorites series. Cynthia is a seriously talented lady! Her shop, Cynthia Vardhan Ceramics, carries delicate, handmade ceramic pieces that make you want to buy the whole store. Yes, not even kidding. Today Cynthia agreed to stop by FT and share with us a little insight into her world and inspiration.


1. Name, Business Name, and Age:
Cynthia Vardhan of Cynthia Vardhan Ceramics & I'm 32.

2. When did you start creating pieces? When did you open your shop and where are you based out of? 
I started making pottery at 13 in an afterschool program and have been working at it ever since! I started selling in about 2005, and quit my day job to focus totally on ceramics in 2010. My studio & I are in downtown Columbus, Ohio.

3. What is the inspiration behind your pieces? 
Inspiration comes mainly from traditional textile designs and historical ceramics. I especially enjoy quilts, lace, and sari patterns as well as the shapes of Japanese & Islamic ceramics.
 





Cynthia has offered to give away one of her gorgeous white on white ceramic dishes (pictured above) to one lucky reader! To enter you must do one (or all) of the following - up to 4 entries:
