"Since time I can remember, I have been deeply fascinated by Indian art forms, architecture, culture, rituals and things associated with these rituals. I was particularly drawn to native art forms like Gond, Madhubani, Phad. Pattachitra and Traditional arts like Pichwai. Miniatures and mural. To advance this fascination, I travelled a lot, and still travel whenever I get a chance. I have traversed Indian nature, wildlife, art festivals, luxury palaces and even base level village life. I have also travelled to Russia and Europe. It’s safe to say that I am blessed with an artistic soul and after brushing with so much of Indian and world art, I had to do something. The seedlings were there, all it took was churning of thoughts, some ditching, few pangs of failure, few chisels of re-shaping and there I had my very own startup project-Kaunteya. My grandfather used to have these pieces from Royal Albert series, I think that was my first brush with hi-end tableware. Combined with my desire to present the Indian art brilliance to the world on a medium which is more mainstream and widely approachable, tableware became the obvious choice." - Sonal Jetha to TDC
Since the time unknown, India enjoys a position high up in terms of art, architecture, rituals, and festivities. These aspects have their own aura, vibrancy and of course a tale, tales which are passed down the generations but are missing in mainstream. Kaunteya has brought these tales in mainstream product design with their 4 tableware series – Byah, Pichwai, Jyamiti and Dasara.
Each series has its own tale of inspiration, Byah is based on Phad Art, Pichwai tells the tales of Lord Krishna, Jyamiti is dedicated to symmetry of Indian architecture and Dasara portrays the Mysore Dussehra. The series are visual candies to eyes and can be seen at www.kaunteya.in.
"Kaunteya employs both modern software compatible artists as well as original art
form artists. Being from advertising industry, forming an artist pool was easy. The
pool consists of digital painters, sketch artists, graphics illustrators who together
imprint the base design truest to its original art inspiration. Our original artisans are
based in Karnataka, MP, Rajasthan and Bihar. And we are proud that we are able to
help these artisans with a part of our sales to keep their art form alive." - Sonal Jetha to TDC
