Anvi Pottery is the fulfilment of master ceramist Sandeep Manchekar’s dream of a ceramic studio facility, where students can enroll in residencies, learn pottery, exchange ideas and expand their knowledge of the craft.
Sandeep has taught ceramics for well over 30 years and is renowned for his lustre glaze work and raku. He manufactures kilns and wheels and also supplies clay bodies, raw materials and glazes to studio potters, art schools and institutions across the country.
The Anvi Pottery studio is also available to artists and production potters. Equipped with potter’s wheels, multiple gas and electric kilns, slab rollers and pug mills, you can bring your ideas and leave with finished products.

Sandeep started his journey with ceramics at the age of eight and he has dedicated his life to practicing and teaching pottery. Over the last few decades, Sandeep has taught and mentored hundreds of ceramic artists and enthusiasts across India.
Set among the lush farmlands of Raigad, with the verdant hills as a backdrop, the studio sets the stage for a slower life away from the city. Anvi Pottery attracts ceramists from all over India to practice pottery and attend classes, events and residencies.
