She  is the golden bridge, the wonderful fire.

The luminous heart of the Unknown is she.

The Golden Bridge Pottery situated in Pondicherry on the southeast coast of India was founded in 1971 by Deborah Smith and Ray Meeker. The studio produces a flexible line of wood fired, glazed, stoneware pottery.

Deborah took charge of the pottery production in 1985 when Ray began a series of experiments in “fired building” technology. Deborah retired in 2018 and Ray presently manages the production and oversees student training and artist residencies that began in 1983. He continues his individual work on monumental clay sculpture.
