Khani grew up in the beautiful Ozark Mountain region of Southwest Missouri. As a child she took summer art lessons at the Springfield Art Museum and found the pottery classes particularly fascinating. Off and on over the past 35 years, Khani has taken pottery lessons as she and her husband moved from one city to the next all along the Gulf Coast. After settling in Mobile in 2006, her husband gave her a potter’s wheel and kiln for Christmas. Now Khani is able to spend many creative and peaceful hours in her studio in the garage of their historic home in Midtown. Her love of color is evident in the lively, bright glazes she uses. Khani’s pottery is functional, decorative and original with no two pieces exactly alike. The glazes are lead-free, dinnerware and ovenware safe.
