A couple of months ago I talked about my idea of making handmade gifts like this. The idea was quite a hit and 2 of my aunts asked me to make the same for them. So here I am, with 2 more kettles as my Diwali gift to them :)
It’s no secret – I absolutely love warli and try to use it wherever possible.
This one turned out to be quite interesting and for once, I was really tempted to keep it for myself! ;)
I tried to bring in a couple of things together and even attempted some birds and beasts.
For the next one I took a brighter base and did a little freehand.
Though floral is not my forte, I quite liked the final result.
I didn't do a double coat of the base this time, so the aluminium is visible in some places.
Learning from experience, I didn’t put in plants this time.
a) not many species can survive in the little space that a kettle provides
b) without the plant, it can be used as an adornment in any corner of the house
I just hope after seeing each other’s kettles the aunts don’t complain, “Bhumi gave you the better one”. You know how aunts are...
In queue are two more friends. But I believe now I’m done with kettles. Looking for another interesting base. If you have any suggestions, do let me know.
And yes, wish you all a very Happy Diwali! :)
