Vinata Goswamy (b.1961, Mumbai) is a ceramic artist interested in form and the ceramic process in equal measure. She is based in Singapore.
As a docent at the Singapore Art Museum, Vinata had a fortunate opportunity to be introduced to clay in a series of classes that the Master Potter Iskandar Jalil conducted at Jalan Bahar Clay Studios in 2006. There she discovered her love for clay and sculpting, which she explored in a certificate course in Sculpture in 2007 with Yeo Chee Kiong at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore. Vinata further learned from Iskandar Jalil in 2008 at his studio in the Malay Heritage Centre, Kampong Glam. From 2009 to date, she has been working out of Jalan Bahar Clay Studios.
She is a member of the Singapore Sculpture Society.
