Poetry in pottery


POETTERY IS back in the city with its pottery collection that is inspired by the spirit of spring. The designer duo from Delhi, Anubir and Bhavna Singh have let go their imagination in a riot of colours. Their latest collection boasts of handcrafted furniture forms, urns, pots and lighting concepts in shades of yellow, green and peach.

The sleek furniture forms that have been created to suit modern tastes are an elegant fusion of stoneware, metal glass and wood. Consoles, coffee tables, runs, lamps, mirrors, murals and dining tables... the designers' oeuvre spell style. What makes each piece distinct is the sculpting, the motifs and the lyrical use of colours.

Among the most compelling consoles is the one sculpted with a woman's face draped in fabric. Many of the consoles have concealed lighting making them both furniture and lighting concepts.

The coffee and occasional tables topped with geometric and abstract shapes in glass come in various sizes. The floral and leaf motifs stand out.

"We have tried to explore contemporary concepts and create a theme look for interiors," says Serbjeet Singh, who has developed Poettery's `unbreakable' stonework ferric oxide compound.

The Poettery exhibition is on at Vimonisha gallery, Khader Nawaz Khan Road, Nungambakkam, till May 5.
