208. Magic hands of Kutch


ImageImage

This beautiful needle art form originated in Kutch, Gujarat, India. It is kind of interlaced herringbone stitch and gives the impression of Armenian embroidery! Mostly the Kutch work enhanced and embedded with mirrors, which makes it most splendid embroidery on clothing. The use of colors, placement of mirrors, overall style and design makes a great ornamentation for garment. Creative usage of all design elements makes Kutch work as a great fashion.

This is one of my Kutch needle work on kameez (Knee length top usually worn over leggings).  I used black and sap green silk thread for Kutch work and multicolored silk thread for mirrors.

Also Kutch artisans have a beautiful art heritage in creating Bhungas(mud house) with dazzling mirror walls.

Mud word and Abhala (small pieces of glasses ) is the only old Kutch Art done till today. This work was first carried out on walls but now they are carrying out on the walls in the ceiling and on the exterior of the home.

177. Modular Tile Design


Modular pattern design seems so simple that many people don’t even consider. Yet its one of the best way of expressing your style. Designing patterns are always endless each can give dramatically a different look and feel.
Till I started doing this modular design project, I was in same perception that it is simple. It is not simple as it looks. Coming up with new and unique design which competes and beats the regular design is challenging. It took almost 8 hours to come up with my final design. Another big challenging part comes in choosing the colors which goes best with each design element of the tile in the same time enhancing each tile. Once after the colors finalised, its really a big task filling the colors with equal and even spread. I used scotch drafting tape to avoid patchy fill. Finally it took 16 hours with breaks to complete the filling part. This is a huge tough project which looks easy and simple.

Biomorphic Spoons using cherry wood is just wonderful.
