Onekind

The wheel moves
              The clay is alive
I   hold the pot
                     In my hands….

SOMETHING CRAFTED BY HAND HAS A SPECIAL HUMAN QUALITY. IT HAS THE ABILITY TO BE UNIQUE BECAUSE EACH HAND IS UNIQUE IN ITS OWN WAY. THUS CRAFT BY ITS VERY NATURE MUST CELEBRATE NOT ERASE THIS DIFFERENCE. ‘ONE OF A KIND’   BY E'THAAN EXPLORES THE ART NATURE OF CRAFT.  EACH PIECE IS ONE OF KIND IN MATERIAL, TEXTURE AND DESIGN. IT IS A FINGERPRINT.

WOOD WORK, WOOD BRANDING, WOOD BLOCK CARVING, WOOD INLAY WORK, SOAPSTONE WORK, SANJHI PAPER CUTWORK, RAJASTHANI MINIATURE PAINTING, WOOD JAALIWORK, ENAMEL WORK ON COPPER, BIDRI INLAY WORK AND DHOKRA ARE THE CRAFT SKILLS WHICH GIVE BIRTH TO THESE DESIGNS.

‘ONE OF A KIND’  FEATURES THE WORK OF  CRAFT DESIGNERS- JITESH MALIK , RITU VARUNI,AND TAVISHI, THAT SEEKS TO BE ANOTHER NEW PLATFORM FOR CRAFT WHEREIN INDIAN CRAFT FINDS ITS TRUE IDENTITY AS THE TREASURE TROVE THAT IT IS.  OUR MASTER ARTISANS NEED TO BE RECOGNISED AS THE NATIONAL TREASURES THAT THEY ARE. LET US REMEMBER AND APPRECIATE WHAT WE HAVE AND WHAT OTHERS HAVE LOST.

This gallery is dedicated to Bharati Chadha, one of the founder partners of e’thaan; a wonderful  and very special human being and dear friend, who passed away on the 26th December 2011. She was the marketing and sales head for e’thaan and remains forever its spirit and inspiration.
