Obituary to Satya Narayan Lal Karn

Obituary to Satya Narayan Lal Karn

It is a sad year for Paramparik Karigar. As we have lost another jewel in our crown. Our beloved Satya Narayanji Lal Karn left us for heavenly abode on the 6 Nov,2015. He suffered a severe heart attack. He was born on 4th December 1952, in Jitwarpur, Madhubani District in Bihar.

Mithila Art by Satyanarayan & Moti Karna - Bihar (1)
Satya Narayanji Lal Karn was one of the finest Mithila painters. He learnt this art from his mother, a Padmashree, Smt. Jagdamba Devi.

Mithila Art by Satyanarayan & Moti Karna - Bihar
He was the head of the Creative art department and the teacher’s training programme at the National Bal Bhavan, New Delhi which he joined in 1971 until he retired.

Mithila Art by Satyanarayan & Moti Karna
He had participated in many exhibitions and workshops in India, Australia, France, Bulgaria and USA. He was invited to hold workshops at the India Festival, Kennedy Centre in Washington in 2011. He was the recipient of the Kamladevi Chatopadhyay Memorial Award in 2000, and the National Award, jointly with his wife in 2001.

Mithila Art by Satyanarayan & Moti Karna-Bihar
He was one of the founding members of Paramparik Karigar since its inception in 1996. He had met Roshan Kalapesi at an exhibition at the Lalit Kala Academy in New Delhi, who inspired and guided them over the years and Satya Narayan Lal Karn & his wife Moti Karn became active member of Paramparik Karigar.

He is survived by his wife Moti Karn, and two sons Chandan and Nandan. Moti & Satya Narayan ji worked together on a painting in perfect unision. May God give Moti and their sons the strength withstand this great loss.

Satya Narayanji is an irreplaceable loss to Paramparik Karigar and will be dearly missed.
He was an artist with great insight and deep knowledge of the myths, legends and tantric art of Mithila painting. His workshops were magical, soul stirring and in sync with nature.

May his soul rest in peace.Our prayers remain with him and his family.

We lost a jewel in our crown: Master Craftsman, M. V. Lakshmanan

We lost a jewel in our crown: Master Craftsman, M. V. Lakshmanan

Master Craftsman, M. V. Lakshmanan

Master Craftsman, M. V. Lakshmanan

In month of August 2015 , we lost yet another jewel in our crown, our beloved Mr. M. V. Lakshmanan. He immortalized his art in his beautiful bronze sculptures which will always remind us of his genius.

M. V. Lakshmanan was a Master Craftsman and an expert in traditional bronze craft and metal casting.Metal casting was his passion. At young age he decided not to follow his ancestral profession as a goldsmith. This passion brought him to Bangalore all the way from a small village in Kerala to learn the craft at the Central Handicraft Development Centre. In recognition to his genius the president of India honored Mr. Lakshmanan with National Award for excellence in bronze sculpting in 1980.

International accolades have also poured in. With his participation in the ‘Festival of India’ in England, his work got noticed and now these are on display in museums and art centers all over Britain and USA. From 16th Feb 2007 to 14th March 2007 he exhibited in New York in USA with Paramparik Karigar and gave demonstrations of traditional sculpture of India.

 Talent runs in Lakshman’s family as his sons Latish, Liju and Limu are sculptors and successful 3D animators. His son Latish helped him in his work and will carry on his tradition further with Paramparik Karigar.

We, at Paramparik Karigar salute you Mr. lakshmanan and you will forever remain in our hearts.

Bronze-casting:

 Bronze by M V lakshmanan

The classical art of bronze-casting was perfected by craftsmen who rendered religious imagery into metallic form.

Slender images of goddesses rich in detail and mighty gods in awe – inspiring postures are created and each pose or gesture has a mythological significance. Stylistically the images made in Tamil Nadu conform to periods like Pallava, Chola, Pandyan and Nayaka. Bronze contrived from copper and tin is used to shape the beautiful sculptures following the guidelines in Shilpasastras. While making the countless and individualistic images with extreme precision, the craftsman has to learn not only the physical measurements to achieve the right proportions but also to familiarize himself with the verses describing each deity, its characteristics, symbolism, and above all the aesthetics. Usually a coconut palm leaf is used as a measuring ribbon, marks being made by folding the leaf. On the technical and aesthetic excellence of the wax model depends the ultimate perfection of the end product. The mould is given several clay coatings on the wax model. In solid casting the molten alloy is poured in a thin and even stream into the mould. When the mould is broken, care is taken to see that the head of the icon comes out first as a good omen. Connecting rods are often used for support and these have to be detached most skillfully. In hollow casting a clay model is made over which is applied a thick coating of prepared wax. The thickness of the wax must match that of the final article under preparation. The mould is kept rotating on the lathe as the hot wax is spread, over which are marked and pressed the designs for decorating. Other coatings are given of a paste of burnt clay to keep the wax intact. An opening is provided in the outer-shell and when a fire is lit around it the wax melts and flows out through it. Into this empty space is poured the molten metal. Then the usual method of tempering it with heat and cold alternately is operated

Jewels in our Crown Master Weaver for Ikkat: A. G. Govardhan: Padma Shree Awardee

A G Govardhan recieving Padma Shri 1

About Ikkat Weaving:

Ikkat by A G Govardhan

 In the state of Andhra Pradesh the Ikkat process is known as ‘pagdu bandu’ ‘buddavassi’ and ‘chitki’. The oldest ikkat centre in this state is Chirala. The introduction of tie and dye technique into Pochampalli area was as late as the beginning of the century. Today Nalgonda district near Hyderabad with Pochampalli, Puttapaka, Koyyalagudem, Velanki, Sripuram and other localities are the main centers of Ikkat weaving in Andhra Pradesh. Ikkat Tie and dye yarn weaving is also used in the states of Gujarat and Orrisa. 

Brilliant colour schemes and geometric or floral designs in Ikkat are popularly used by interior designers for furnishing fabrics, dress materials and elegant cotton and silk Sarees. The processes of tie and dye design require the fixing of the designs and patterns before the warp and weft are coloured. The threads forming the design are tied and dyed repeatedly to bring in the right colour at the right place and the interlacement of the threads produces the design on the fabric. The dyeing over the warp and weft are spread out for weaving on a loom. As patterns and designs emerge they impart elegance and beauty to the woven fabric. Tie and dye techniques may be applied on the warp threads (warp Ikkat) or the weft threads (weft Ikkat) either of which is called single Ikkat or they may be applied on warp and weft threads in such a way that the two designs overlap each other called double Ikat. In single as well as double Ikkat, warp and weft threads which are tied and dyed as per design should not only be positioned accurately in proper sequence in weaving as required by the design and its colour scheme but also should be accurately secured to prevent shifting, displacing or entangling. With this highly sophisticated Ikkat technique complicated motifs appear exactly the same on either side of the fabric.

Master Weaver: A G Govardhan

A G Govardhan

A. G. Govardhan hailing from Andhra Pradesh, is a master weaver specializing in Ikkat handloom weaving as long practiced in the state. Born in a family of traditional weavers, who have been involved in Ikkat weaving for the past 75 years, Shri Govardhan’s specialty is weaving the Telia Rumaal, which requires immense skill to execute. Shri Govardhan has been spreading awareness of Ikkat through lectures and demonstrations in different cities in India and abroad.

 Ikkat by A G Govardhan 1

Awards:

Shri Govardhan has received many awards for his work

1) Govt. of India honored Shri. Govardhan with the National Award in 1983

2) He received UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts in 2002

3) National Master Weaver Award in 2006

4) He was honored with Shilp Guru Award in 2007

Paramparik Karigar deeply mourns the death of one of our senior Master Craftsman from Bastar, Shri Jaidev Baghel

Paramparik Karigar deeply mourns the death of one of our senior Master Craftsman from Bastar, Shri Jaidev Baghel.
Behind the superb metal cast images of the tribal deities of Bastar lies a rich world of myth and legend sculpted byJaidev Baghel.
jaidev Baghel
Master Craftsman Jaidev Baghel was born at Kondagaon, Bastar District of Chattisgarh. He belonged to a tribal artisan community whose hereditary specialization is Gadwakam or bronze metal casting. Jaidev learnt the techniques of casting metals from his father, a well known craftsman of his time.
Shankar-Nandi by Jaidev-Baghel
Jaidev was a great craftsman whose work had no boundaries.  A winner of the National Award in 1977 and several other awards, showed his outstanding skills. His strength was in his ability to research the origin of his craft and then to take it several steps ahead. Jaidev Baghel had exhibited his sculptures nationally as well as internationally. He exhibited his work in Moscow, Heidelberg & Stuttgart – Germany, London, Oxford, Scotland, Australia, U.S.A, Tokyo-Japan, Switzerland, Rome-Italy,Paris-France, Singapore, Hongkong, Bangkok. He left behind his wife Lata, three sons Bhupendra, Dhananjay, Sanjay and twin daughters, Poonam and Purnima. Jaidev also supported the families of his brothers. About twenty apprentices lived and worked with him constantly and he has been able to build a common facility centre for his Gadwa workers in Kondagaon.
Mohariya kachwa by Jaidev Baghel
Jaidev will always be remembered by art lovers for his Metal casting or Gadwakam which is an ancient art of casting in India in which intricate design work retains its delicacies of form, line and modulation. The craft of casting metal by the lost wax process is called cire perdue in the West. This technique practiced in India from the prehistoric age still survives with efforts of craftsman like Jaidev and is used for making religious images, ritualistic items and objects of utility.
Mahua tree by Jaidev baghel
Jaidev Baghel had sculpted a six-foot-high Mahua tree as a sign of protest against the destruction of Bastar’s forests. For Adivasis it is the tree of life, which since the beginning of time, has provided them with food, shade and income. The sculpture was bought by the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai and installed on the sixth floor under the dome of the building.
In the 26/11 terrorist strike, the sixth floor of the hotel was gutted. But as a note from the management said, “This symbolic tree withstood the attack and stands immortalized”.
