COLLECTION THEMES

ERAK- एरक
Indian subcontinent especially Indus region has a rich tradition of decorative art that forms part of engravings and stucco work in monasteries, mausoleums. The art is an expression and a dialogue between west and east, a narrative that makes designs of Morris have relevance in India.
'Erak' eulogises the stylised art of potted plants, shrubs with life like birds chirping amongst them. Walls to floors have been a canvas for this artform and Erak looks specifically at designs in carpets and tapestry that connect Indian art to Morris's guild.
Each ensemble tributes to a bouquet of flowers in arrangement and vibrancy seen in nature.
