Jamnalal Kumhar

Jamnalal Kumhar

More than ever before, the organic nature of Master Sculptor Jamnalal’s incredible clay sculpture, from Molela in Rajasthan, makes it relevant and critical to preserve. Mud from the Beas river, dawrigund gum from the local trees, donkey dung to bind the clay and local jala to varnish the finished piece : all part of what goes in to the traditional votives that are created from coils of 1.5” thick mud ‘ropes' that are kneaded into shape. The votives are of gods, goddesses, animals and symbols, and normally painted with bright, vegetable colours. Jamnalal has taken his craft to another level : creating anything to a brief, through flat 2D sculptures that can stretch any length when broken into square tiles. Collaborating and teaching across the world, he is determined his traditional craft will never die.
