Dolon Kundu

These terracotta sculptures are created through a technique of pinch pottery, where the mud is literally pinched into shape. Dolon won the President’s Medal for her mastery, and has taken her simple decorative objects into a complex and nuanced world in her design collaboration with Nandita Palchoudhuri : flowers grow in wild abandon and almost triumphant joy, from the lotuses that are from her village pond to exotic blooms that she has seen in travels or imagined.
