Born in Ahmedabad, India, Neena Jhaveri moved to Winchester, Virginia, in 1988. She has created customized pottery for the Museum Store since its 2005 opening. Many of the artist’s pottery pieces for the MSV are created using live flowers, herbs, and greenery from the Museum’s own Glen Burnie Gardens. According to Museum Store Manager Bonnie Barr, Jhaveri’s garden pottery is a perennial best-seller in the store; many customers collect the artist’s one-of-a-kind pieces and eagerly anticipate her newest creations. In April of 2015, Neena Jhaveri received a Buyer’s Choice award from the Museum Store Association (MSA) during its annual convention in Hartford, Connecticut. Her handmade jewelry keeper was the award winner in the eco-friendly category and was recognized for its artistic, functional, and earth-friendly design.
