Lamp: Warli Festive Dance

Each hole is a thought, which when perforated on paper, radiates light which eventually forms a pattern. This pattern in turn reflects a feeling, a thought that perhaps makes the ugly beautiful. Try switching the lamp on in the rainy season, it's the perfect weather...

Handmade paper has been one of my favourite working materials. The density and coarseness of paper makes the product substantial. The pattern on this lamp is the Warli festive dance in the boundary and a wavy fish in the centre, floating in water. There are small-little holes incorporated within the design which form a separate pattern on its
own.
