Nadya Savitri telah ikut serta dalam sejumlah pameran signifikan di Indonesia, seperti CP Biennale: Interpellation pada tahun 2003, dan Jakarta Biennale: Beyond the Limits and Its Challenge pada 2006. Ia menyelesaikan studi-nya pada tahun 2004 di Fakultas Seni Rupa dan Desain ITB, dari program studi kria keramik; dan mendapatkan gelar master dari tempat yang sama pada tahun 2006. Pada tahun yang sama Nadya meneruskan studinya di Jepang hingga tahun 2009 di Tokyo University of the Arts. Pengalaman belajarnya di studio kria keramik membuatnya mampu meluaskan wawasan dan mengem- bangkan teknik, terutama dalam bahan porselen. Dalam karakter yang dingin, rapuh, dan tertembus cahaya, porselen men- jadi bahan kesukaannya. Dalam lima tahun terakhir Nadya utamanya mempergunakan teknik slip casting dalam membuat objek- objek kehidupan sehari-hari. Dalam mem- pergunakan teknik ini, ia mampu menirunya dalam bentuk dan rupa yang sama. Baginya, proses ini menjadi tindakan menggores memori dalam objek, untuk membekukan waktu dari objek itu sendiri. Mereka nampak familiar namun berbeda. Melaluinya kenangan dan sejarah dari benda menjadi diperbaharui.

Nadya Savitri has participated in several im- portant art exhibitions in Indonesia. Some of them are CP Biennale: Interpellation in 2003 and Jakarta Biennale: Beyond The Limits and Its Challenge in 2006. She finished her study in 2004 at the Faculty of Fine Art and Design ITB, majoring in ceramics craft and gained her master’s degree in 2006. In the same year, Nadya continued her study to Japan until 2009 at Tokyo University of The Arts. Her study experience at the ceramics craft studio ena- bles her to broaden her knowledge and en- hance her techniques in ceramics, specifically in using porcelain. She really loves this type of clay because of its character that seems cold, fragile, and translu-scent. For the last five years, Nadya has mainly been using slip casting techniques in producing objects easily found in the day to day life. By using this technique, she is able to create imitations of objects with the same shape and form. To her, this process is an act of engraving a memory on an object to freeze the time of the object. At the end, the ceramic objects produced are a memory of an object. Looks like an object we are familiar with, but different. It is to refresh the memory and history of objects.
