Jewels in our Crown: Master Craftsman: Brahmadeo Ram Pandit (Padma Shri Awardee) Pottery

Pottery is perhaps the oldest craft in the world. Primarily utilitarian, clay utensils have often ranked as some of the most beautiful objects of art.

Traditional folk pottery has always been a part of Indian life and ceremonies.

From per-historic times, there has been an abundance of beautifully fashioned utilitarian pottery. Different varieties of pottery were often painted with black and white pigments or decorated with geometrical incisions. Domestic pottery comes in a bewildering profusion of attractive shapes and sizes.

The process of pottery:
Modeling and shaping of clay and then drying and firing it, is one of the most ancient crafts which has survived even today. Clay can be categorized as primary clay, which includes China clay and Bentonite and secondary clay, which include common clay, red clay, ball clay and fire clay. The potter throws the painstakingly kneaded clay into the center of the wheel, rounding it off, and then spins the wheel around with a stick. As the whirling gathers momentum, he begins to shape the clay into the required form. When finished he severs the shaped bit from the rest of the clay skillfully, with a string.

Copper red bottle
The firing is done in an improvised kiln. Care is taken so that the quality and beauty does not get affected. Intricate glaze is made from a mixed composition and then fired to form a vitreous material with glazed surface. It is then coloured by different mineral substances. Pottery is generally classified as earthenware, stoneware and porcelain, in relation to the clay used and the firing temperatures.

Crystalline ceramics
Distinctive earthenware is produced in various parts of India. There is the Delhi blue pottery made from porcelain. The famous Jaipur hand-painted blue pottery noted for its delicate decoration painted with brush made of squirrel’s hair. Alwar pottery is noted for its paper thin shapes; Bikaner pottery is tinted with Lac colours to which gold paint is added; Khurja pottery is from Uttar Pradesh and is known for its use of colours like orange, brown, and special light red with floral designs in sky blue. Rampur Surahis or water pots noted for their green-blue glazes and Chunar pottery is noted for its brown slip, interspersed by a number of other tints. Kangra in Himachal Pradesh is rich in clay wares mostly black or dark red. Khanapur in Belgaum is noted for its thin variety of pottery with designs etched on the body. Vidi in Kutch abounds in white clay and is noted for its soft white pottery. Saurashtra pottery is known for its likeness to sandalwood paste. Dal gate pottery is from Kashmir where the glazes resemble the cracks of a batik surface. Goa earthenware is famous for its deep rich red velvety surface. The highly artistic Karigari pottery from south Arcot with its original colours of green, yellow, brown and blue glazes is also used for making superbly shaped and coloured water jugs. Indian pottery true to the nature in the directness and simplicity of form and utility has conformed not only to an aesthetic ideal but also to eloquent expression of the material.

Master Craftsman: Brahmadeo Ram Pandit (Padma Shri Awardee)
Born in Bihar, third-generation potter Shri Brahmadeo Pandit has made the most remarkable transition from a traditional potter to a studio potter, creating work that bears the mark of his distinctive techniques of throwing, surface embellishment and firing. His tall vases, salad bowls and platters with interesting glazes have world wide appeal. His mastery over the medium is evident from the intimate variation of hues and designs that he is able to create.

His great grandfather Murthi Pandit made traditional pottery under British rule and then his son Ram Pandit continued the same tradition after independence. The third generation potter Brahmadeo Pandit began his career at Sokodevra Ashram at the age of 19.

Jewels in our Crown: Master Craftsman Jivya Soma Mashe Padma Shri Awardee

 

Padma Shri Jivya Soma Mashe warli art

Padma Shri Jivya Soma Mashe

Warli Tribal Painting:

The Warlis live in Thane district of Maharashtra. They are tribal artists with 1200 years old painting tradition.

Traditionally the women of the tribe created the wall paintings on their ‘chowks’ during marriages and festivals. These paintings were greatly influenced by the surroundings and day-to-day life of the Warli Tribe. To prepare the background for the paintings the walls of the huts were coated firstly with cow-dung, then with the mud and finally with the ‘Geru’ (terracotta paste). Powdered rice was made into a paste to draw the paintings and thin reed like sticks from the Baharu tree were used as pens. The paintings are made by drawing geometric shapes like circles, triangles and squares.

Fishnet by Jivya Soma Mashe
Ironically today it is the men folk who practice this art form. For commercial reasons the paintings are drawn with white rice paste on a paper that is thinly smeared with cow-dung paste. The paintings have semi abstract figures spread over the surface in an easy narrative flow. They have evolved from restricted ritual drawings on mud-walled huts into a pictorial repository of folk tales, humour and myths. The paintings are made without the prop of colour and with a remarkable economy of detail. Realizing that there is a growing demand for the lyrical art, the Warlis have moved from painting the walls of their homes to painting on canvas, paper, table lamps and even fabrics like saris & scarves.

Master Craftman Jivya Soma Mashe ( Padma Shri Awardee)

Jivya Soma Mashe is known for his creative reinvention of an art vocabulary that was disappearing. His is also unique in his vivid representation of the tribal vision of nature and culture in equilibrium and for highlighting the contemporary relevance of local forms of knowledge.

He has significantly contributed to the culture and development of the Warli tribe.

Jivya hails from Dahanu Taluka of Maharashtra, home of the millennia-old Warli tribe. In his youth he was an over-seer of grass lands, and would often paint in the traditional Warli idiom, an expression that was then the preserve of women of the community. A field worker of a crafts board Bhaskar Kulkarni observed him painting. Sensing that Jivya Mashe had immense potential, he encouraged the budding artist to paint, and cultivated him as a master craftsman, and as they say, the rest is the history.

Through his works, Warli art emerged from its cocooned world to draw global fame and attention. Today Jivya’s name is synonymous with Warli painting. A true giant in the Indian art world, he has achieved international recognition and participated in exhibitions and festivals across the world. Jivya has two sons Sadashiv and Balu and a daughter. Both his sons are well known Warli artists. Paramparik Karigar cherishes this precious jewel in it’s crown!

Master Craftsman Shree Lal Joshi: Padma Shri Awardee

Padma Shri Awardee

Shree Lal Joshi Padma Shri Awardee

Phad Painting of Rajasthan

Traditionally created on long, horizontal pieces of cloth known as Phads, this style of folk painting usually depicts the folk deities of Rajasthan, especially Pabuji and Devnarayan. Pabuji was a famous king of the Rathore Clan. He is venerated as a folk deity in Rajasthan.
These paintings carry the task of representing a complex folk narrative which is achieved through specific style of representation. They form a visual backdrop to all-night storytelling performances. The process of making the material ready for painting is an important aspect of Phad painting. The cloth is first stiffened with starch made of boiled flour and glue and then burnished with a special stone device called a Mohra. The artist makes his own pigments using locally available plants and minerals and mixing them with gum and water. Once the composition is laid out in a light yellow colour, the artist applies the traditional colours—red, white, green, blue, orange and brown—and completes the painting. The Joshi families of Bhilwara and Shahapura are the traditional artists of this art form.

Master Craftsman Padma Shri ‘Shree Lal Joshi’
Shree Lal Joshi is a world-renowned artist from Bhilwara, Rajasthan. He hails from a family of Phad artists who were once the sole keepers of the art of Phad painting. Phad painting is an art linked to the lively tradition of storytelling, music and performance. Shree Lal Joshi is credited with reviving this colourful art. More than 50 years ago he founded Chitrashala a pioneer institute for training different styles of paintings of Rajasthan and especially committed to Phad painting (Mewar Style). More than 2000 students & many research scholars have been skilled so far. Many of them are working professionally. Chitrashala has produced many national and international artists, who have been honored with prestigious awards.

Master Craftsman of Kalamkari: Padma Shri J. Gurappa Chetty

Paramparik Karigar introduces its Master Craftsmen under the series called   ‘Jewels In Our Crown’

Master Craftsman of Kalamkari: Padma Shri J. Gurappa Chetty.

Kalamkari

Padma Shri Gurupa Chetty Kalamkari

Kalamkari Gurupa chetty
The art of Kalamkari was originally called Vrathapani. The new name must have come from the use of the ‘Kalam’ (pen), in the paintings. This style embraces the world of gods and a crowd of celestial beings since Kalamkari paintings were used from ancient times for decorating temple images and temple chariots during processions. These paintings were used for giving instructions inside temples. For outdoor gatherings, the paintings were stretched between two palm trees.

Kalamkari by J Niranjan

Making of the painting: The cloth is dipped in Harde/ Karaka fruit/ Myrabalam solution, to make the dye appear black. The brushes used are made from bamboo slivers. A fine pointed one is used to outline the whole painting with black dye. Black dye is made from iron filing which often takes weeks to make. Another flat-tipped brush is covered with an old piece of woolen blanket and is used to brush in the natural vegetable dyes, one at a time. After each colour application, the cloth has to be washed in running water, making the whole process laborious and complicated. The design usually has a main central panel and is surrounded by smaller panels arranged in rows, beneath which, written in black ink, are verses from original texts to transcribe the legend. This was a family vocation, so all members from childhood have to be well versed in the scriptures and legends before they were able to create the Kalamkari .

Master Craftsmen: Padma Shri J. Gurappa Chetty

Padma Shri Gurupa Chetty Kalamkari

Jonnalagadda Gurappa Chetty is son of Lakshmaiah, who was one of the last surviving Kalamkari artists in Andhra Pradesh in the 1940. Lakshmaiah, is accredited for his masterpieces like ‘The Mahabharata’ and ‘The Ramayana’, exhibited in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Gurappa Chetty began learning the art of Kalamkari from his father at the age of 13. He underwent Teacher’s Training Course in 1955-57. He also underwent training in Kalamkari in 1957-59 from All India Handicrafts Board. He spreads awareness about the art of Kalamkari by conducting workshops.

Gurappa perfected this art and carried it to new horizons and even depicted legends from ‘The Puranas.’ His wife Girijamba, colours the paintings outlined by her husband as per the tradition. Gurappa was also very keen to train his daughters and hence became the first Kalamkari artist to hold workshops for women. His son J. Niranjan has carried this tradition on and is a well -known Kalamkari artist in the country, who has traveled extensively (both nationally and internationally) to promote Kalamkari and conduct workshops. Niranjan is a recipient of State Award and also was given an award to celebrate the 50 years of All India Handicrafts Board (AIHB)

Gurappa Chetty is a founder member of Paramparik Karigar.
Awards:
1) J. Gurappa Chetty was honored with the Presidential National Award for Crafstmanship in 1976.
2) He was awarded Telugu Kala Thoranam Sanman from Govt. of Andhra Pradesh.

“Stone Carving by Master Craftsman Padma Shri Sudarshan Sahoo”

Sudarshan Sahoo at work (1)

Stone carving flourished as temple art in various parts of India.

The breathtakingly beautiful temples of Konark, Jagannath(Puri), Rajarani and Lingaraj (Bhubaneshwar) in Orissa are outstanding for their elegance and detailed design.

South India also has a rich heritage of stone sculpture, especially in the presentation of animal and bird life. Following the principles of Shilpa Shastras, the sculptor’s work starts from the quarrying stage, then chiseling numerous shapes and forms out of the stone, transforming it with minutely detailed ornamental designs, ending with the final polish to reveal a form of timeless beauty.

Master Craftsmen: Sudarshan Sahoo (Padma-Shri Awardee):

Master craftsman in stone carving for over six decades, Sudarshan Sahoo has acquired traditional skill and mastery in carving statues of deities and many decorative pieces. He has mastered the art of icon making and he is knowledgeable in the scriptures and ancient lore.

His style imbibes the temple heritage of Orissa. In 1970, he carved the stories of Lord Buddha at the Dhauli peace Pagoda near Bhubaneshwar. He has been to Japan several times at the invitation of the Japan Buddha Sangha and carved all the stone statues and murals for the Buddha temple and Stupas. His long cherished dream came true in 1977 when he started the Sudarshan Crafts Museum at Puri with the objective of bringing about a renaissance in this art.

In 1991, Sri. Sahoo set up the Sudarshan Arts and Crafts Village in Bhubaneshwar to keep the art alive by imparting training to the younger generation.

He has devised a scheme for training poor students free of cost in traditional temple sculpture, panels and statues using various media such as, stone, wood and fiber-glass. His two sons Rabi & Surya have joined him and he gives them scope to research and preserve the art. They have acquired skill and mastery in carving statues and have been practicing the craft for more than 30 years. They specialize in recreating and reviving ancient sculptures in stone, wood and metal.

Sudarshan Sahoo has demonstrated and exhibited his craft in India and abroad. His solo exhibitions in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Pune have received unprecedented appreciation and rave reviews from visitors.
Awards:
1) In 1981 President of India conferred the ‘National Award’ for excellence in Stone Carving to Sudarshan Sahoo.
2) In 1988 President of India honored Shri Sahoo with ‘Padma Shri Award’ for his outstanding contribution in the field of Arts and Crafts of India.
3) In 2003 he was awarded ‘Shilp-Guru Award’ by the Govt of India.
