About Master Artisan:
After 13 long years in the corporate banking sector, I decided to take a break. Handicrafts were one area always spiked my interest, so I travelled around Orissa learning about various art forms visiting craft clusters and meeting artisans. I learned two facts that became the foundation of all my future efforts. First, many of these beautiful crafts and art forms were barely sustaining, and second if they fetched unfair prices for the artisans involved. Since then I have been working to address these problems.
Dokra being a community-based craft, we are associated with multiple artisan families in various villages Bharpada, Dhenkanal in Orissa. This 4000 year old craft often calls upon the entire family being dedicated to the various stages and processes.
