February, the shortest month, the month of love and care and the month of Kala Ghoda Festival at Mumbai.
Kala Ghoda Festival is week long affair, usually at the beginning of the month. Its a treat for artists from across the spectrum. Its a treat for a commoner like me too. I am amazed by the talent displayed through various installations. India, no doubt is an immense pool of creative genius!
One of my favourite sections, at this fest, is “Potters area” and the other, installations by children from various schools.
At one of the stalls in the ‘Potters area’, this year, I was mesmerized by the thought process and excellent coherent translation of the thoughts into the figurines by a particular potter. It was difficult for onlookers to believe that all the figurines were made of clay and were handcrafted!
While having a word, the potter informed me that she had banked on various life scenes from her memories and transformed them into tangible stand alone instances in the form of figurines. Right from carefree childhood to mature adulthood, she had chosen distinct moments from timeline of life and created a kaleidoscope of emotion. I could see “Poetic Pottery” in every creation!
Sharing the visuals here for you to fall in love with them…
And a few more…
I am sure you are equally in awe of these masterpieces as I was. Agree me?
