Business As Usual: Moklé Studio
In the heart of Brooklyn, amidst the hustle and bustle of city life, lies a secret oasis of creativity and artistry. A place where two artists, Mokshini and Moses, come together to turn everyday ceramic vessels into one-of-a-kind pieces of art.
Their live-in studio is a feast for the eyes, with the heady scent of wet clay and the sight of paint brushes scattered about, the space is alive with inspiration. The studio is a sanctuary where the couple indulges their passion for pottery, and transforms it into something truly extraordinary.
Moses, with his obsession for wheel-thrown pottery that explores traditional forms, takes inspiration from his earliest childhood memories, of his grandmother's San Jose home adorned with porcelain antiques and terra-cotta pots. His artistic journey began in California, but it was in Jerusalem where his love for antiques, pottery, and quality craftsmanship truly flourished.
Mokshini, with her Sri Lankan heritage and New Zealand upbringing, brings a unique perspective to the studio. Her paintings, infused with eccentric personalities, femininity, fashion, and architecture are a reflection of her perpetual sources of inspiration. Together, the couple creates art that is a refreshing three-dimensional approach and an exciting path for each of their artistic expressions.
In this sanctuary of creativity and passion, Mokshini and Moses invite elegance into the home, with their art that enriches spaces and stirs the senses.
We were lucky enough to drop in and spent a couple of hours with the two to capture a glimpse of their personality and thought process of how Moklé Studio came to be.
