the studio

Founded in 2019 by Tanvi Arora, TAV Ceramics is a design driven ceramics studio, based in Vancouver, BC, that employs traditional wheel throwing along with more robust production techniques. The studio has handled projects of a broad spectrum of scales and disciplines ranging from high volume dinnerware to site specific installations – most recent being a 120 piece installation at the main stage of IDS Vancouver.

Born in South Asia, raised in the Middle East and now settled in Canada, her work encapsulates her multi-cultural experiences and knowledge. With a profound love for clay and passion to push the boundaries of the medium, she strives to create ceramic pieces that bridge the gap between functionality and artistic expression. Most recently she was recognized by Western Living as the 2023 Maker of the Year in their annual Designer of the Year Awards.
