Canadian ceramic artist and sculptor Aneela Dias-D'SousaAneela Dias-D’Sousa established herself as a ceramic artist after graduating from the University of Mumbai (B.F.A Ceramics) India. Since immigrating to Canada, she continued her education at Sheridan College as a mature student. Aneela currently lives and works in Pickering, Ontario and has pursued residencies at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre and the International Ceramics Centre in Kecskemet Hungary. 

Aneela’s studio practice includes curated and juried exhibitions, craft sales and commissions. Aneela enjoys teaching and giving back to her community through volunteer positions, currently holding the position of Past President with Toronto Potters and recently invited to join the Canadian collective of ceramic artists, Make and Do. 

For the last 21 years Aneela has been engaged by the magic of clay and is awed by the constant discoveries of this material. The concepts for Aneela’s work are based on personal experience; these describe passing thoughts, transient phases and fleeting emotions using a minimalist style.
