TALE OF CHARISMATIC CRAFTSWOMEN
"For the artisan, the craft is an end in itself. For you, the artist, craft is the vehicle for expressing your vision. Craft is the visible edge of art" - David Bayles.
Many people we have seen sofar prove "if there's a will a there's a way" The person today we have is no exception. Meet Ms. Mahalakshmi an engineer who is also an artist! Maha crafts with passion, love, and dedication which literally make them so special.
According to Maha, there are two important things about crafting, Crafts are something that must be done with dedication and with interest and every craft has its own flaw or defect which makes them special. "HANDMADE CRAFTS ARE SO MUCH MEANINGFUL," says Maha.
Back in 2018, Maha wanted to do something that is more creative the journey begins there. It was a hobby that turned to love of life. Later with the help of Instagram, she started showcasing her works then gradually made it a business. Maha believes in the statement "Happiness is making others happy" which still drives her in her passion path.
As an artist, Maha gets her inspiration from all other artists and she depends on herself for motivation and encouragement. After all, in the end, the one's who gonna be there for us in ourselves! The beginnings are always tough especially new ones. There was a phase where she strives for appreciation and recognization which she deserves. There comes a turning point Maha's friend came for rescue! by constantly pushing her to the limits. Not all heroes wear capes!
Even though there are many masterpieces from Maha still there are few special ones close to her heart, cartoon miniature carvings which were started from scratch one, silk thread jewellery which was designed and made for bridal work, explosion boxes which portray snapshots and chocolate which greet with sweet.
uncertainty and spontaneity are two big traits of Maha as her works are mostly not pre-planned. She also organized a handicraft workshop event which is also a government event. No wonder she takes pride in that.
And finally few words from Mahalakshmi herself,
"Any creative medium is neither a cakewalk nor a place of social media which would attract likes and shares it heavily needs passion towards the work and the time which involves wholeheartedly."
