With incessant rains last fortnight, the water from the adjacent well seeped through the floor of our casting shed where the moulds were kept for drying. More than fifty got damaged. They have been repaired and now drying in fire. https://www.facebook.com/DevraiArtVillage/photos/a.679102768822272.1073741848.354540791278473/1155930584472819/?type=3

A write up on Devrai Art Village in the Hindu!
Welcome to Devrai Art Village,Panchgani https://www.facebook.com/DevraiArtVillage/photos/a.679102768822272.1073741848.354540791278473/1107091089356769/?type=3
Devrai Art is perhaps about finding resonances and synergies... With people and different mediums. This is a sample of Devrai Pot Dhokra- an amalgamation of brass with terracotta. The candle is from 'Sunrise Candles' Mahabaleshwar, an initiative by a blind person Bhavesh Bhatia who has become a source of light for more than 2000 blind all over the country! Devrai feels proud to be associated with Sunrise! https://www.facebook.com/DevraiArtVillage/photos/a.679102768822272.1073741848.354540791278473/1105908389475039/?type=3
