Starting her career as a painter, Ishrat was drawn to ceramics when she tried the wheel by chance one day. She quickly found herself taken by the pottery process: the natural tendencies of clay, glaze, and fire, to create form and emotion, as well as the unique combination of art and utility that ceramics permits. 

Ishrat is equally inspired by the natural and the human. She takes her palette from Canadian and Pakistani landscapes while, conceptually, her work often deals with social issues, using clay as a story-telling medium to communicate messages that come from the land and society and their complex interaction.

Ishrat makes wares for the kitchen and sculptures for the home. She won the MARTY’s Established Visual Artist award in 2010.
