Intro
I come from a family of traditional Indian goldsmiths and jewellery designers and makers. I am the third generation, with some 70 years of tradition in my background. In addition to this training through heredity, I have finished my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Metal Work in Sir J. J. School of Art - Mumbai in 1999 in modern environment. Currently I am working as a full time Studio-Jeweller, Enamellist and Metalsmith and my studio is based in Sawantwadi (Maharashtra), a very small town in Western India. 

Statement

My work is thoroughly contemporary in design and technique, it’s influenced by traditional practices. Thus my overall approach fuses many different elements of metal work and jewellery design, from both the past and the present. My experience to date, have opened up the world of various styles, techniques and methods in Metal Work, Enamel and Jewellery. I also have got inspiration for research in painting, textiles, ceramics and other art forms. The hand-skills of traditional Indian Jewellery Making are world class and these are at my fingertips. It’s the exposure to and experience of modern jewellery design and practice, that would always give me new focus and inspiration. I am very motivated to continue to develop my own language of expression as an ‘Artist’ and I seek to do this through my inventive integration of traditional craft with progressive interpretation.
