Anmol gift ideas


ANJU KUMAR is again at it. Her vast collection of terracotta lamp shades, ornate bases, decorous pillars, sculpted garden settees, murals, vases, wall panels and much more are on display at Blind Relief Association, New Delhi from this Saturday till Friday.

Those who know her works can make out that this time she along with her trademark floral narratives on life-size vases, has also dabbled with abstract designs on them, that too in brightest shades of green, orange, copper and blue. This is due to a huge demand from foreign countries, especially the U.K. And with work this time she has explored all new decorative habits of our own Indian people and U.K. "Contrary to my assumption, they demanded luminous shades because they mostly have subdued interiors, so to make a good colour contrast they go for bright shades, while Indians opt for wooden tones, browns and oranges," observes Anju, a known name in pottery now.

So you will find those huge vases of abstract designs with leathery look, floating candles called urlis for side tables in unusual shapes and designs in turquoise, red, orange, wrought iron stands to compliment vases, panels and also Diwali items like diyas, thalis, Ganeshas, tulsi, chauras, chowki as also gift items as photo frames, etc. This time her murals not only have lathery tones and folds but also elements of glass.

All these form her solo exhibition titled `Fantasies in Terracotta' under her label Anmol. And her price range starts from Rs.100 and reaches up to 20,000.

Interesting?
