Alya Khan graduated from RMIT University in 2014 with Distinction and received Honours from the Ceramics Workshop of the ANU School of Art + Design in 2015. 

She creates ceramic objects for functional use as well as in sculptural forms that examine human interaction, connection with their surroundings and the functionality of objects and building structures.

Her most recent sculptures are an exploration of material, shape and size through skeletal forms which resemble building structures. The forms are developed via the process-driven practice of assembling, constructing and formulating the materials.

Alya’s understanding of the use of clay as part of human existence and the connection of building structures to modern day civilization has influenced the development of her work.
