These lovely people wrote to me over the last couple of months, sharing their work, ideas and new products. Take a look at all the goodness:Manreet Deol’s JeweleryManreet is product designer based out of Brooklyn and Delhi. She has recently started working on jewelery and here is what she says about her work: “My jewelry is often organic in appeal, inspired by travels to Borneo, Bali, NY and my interpretation of the textural vocabulary of each culture ( Rice grains, Frangipani flowers, corals, wisteria wines etc ). They are made of recycled polished brass in the sand-casting method. I love using this ancient casting process in which my clay sculptings are cast into recycled metal from a fresh new sand mold each and every time.I enjoy collaborating w/ craftspeople who would ordinarily utilize this casting technique for making household goods”Manreet is looking out for retailers in India and all over the world. Reach out to Manreet in case you would like to stock her gorgeous collection!Art by Aarohi Singh Aarohi a self taught artist paints in oil, acrylics, watercolor, pastels and works on paper, canvas, metal, cardboard, wood and fabric! Phew! To say the least, she is extremely talented! In her own words: “My art is sometimes coloured by chalk pastels, other times ink, sometimes by oils, even charcoal; but always, always finished with my view of the world” See more of her paintings and her interpretation of kitsch, at her blog – Art by Aarohi Psst: Aarohi, I am looking forward to see you exhibit in Delhi/Gurgaon sometime soon 🙂
