While observing the potter’s moving the wheel and moulding beautiful items if you ever got that thought “I wish I could also create those beautiful articles from the lump of clay“, then this can be the place for you. You can let your imagination fly and mould that lump of clay with your artistic hands or try the pottery wheel. This is Clay Station – A pottery studio for aspiring potters, located in the green hub of Bangalore.

Like those few people who take the plunge to pursue what they always wanted to do, Ganesan Manickavasagam is one of those few – One of the founders of ClayStation.
