About This Book

The history of India's crafts is a story of humankind's engagement with Nature. Creative hands turned rock into objects of divinity, minerals into lamps to worship, plants into woven textures to wear and waste materials into beautiful objects of everyday utility. The Indian crafts practitioner is therefore a conservationist who craves to live in harmony with his environment. This book seeks to highlight the creative relationship between the craftperson and the environment. It describes the environment surrounding the major and minor crafts of India, offering a wealth of information to art, craft and Nature lovers. With many colour photographs of Indian crafts.
