Agnisikha: Art for Light


This lamp shade is among the most popular products of the artisans of Pipili, in Puri district in the Indian state of Odisha. The town is famous for designing beautiful applique handicrafts which comes to shape through fabric based patchwork. Applique is a technique that basically cuts up various coloured fabrics which are then sewn on to the surface of another foundation fabric. It has now developed into a needlework technique in which smaller pieces of fabric, materials like small mirrors and other forms of embroidery are sewn onto a bigger piece of cloth to create designs and patterns. Other artistic delights from the town include banners, canopies, umbrellas, animal puppets, wall hangings, covers for shrines, parasols, bags, pouches, and cushion covers. These crafts are mostly inherited, coming down from family to family.
