Utsha Foundation, Bhubaneshwar

I was in Bhubaneshwar at the beginning of March for a meeting. Stayed another day to visit the Jagannath temple in Puri.
A young designer, a former student of mine took me to the Utsha Foundation to see some ceramic work he had done. 

 A delightful place tucked away in a quiet green neighbourhood. Quirky bits of art in unexpected places.These coconut fiber and yarn forms descend from the ceiling.
 A plug attached to a short length of wire, part of that wire is simulated with paint. Can you spot the point? 
 Doorways which lead to so many possibilities.
   Palm leaf puppets.A traditional craft of Odisha.
The library where we spent an hour in fruitful discussion. 
A portion of the garden used for performances.
