Do you keep Golu at your home ? We do. It was a tradition that was once (I don’t even know when) started by my mother and for the last few years Preethi has been ardently keeping up with the tradition. In fact, I got to participate too last time when she wanted a 5 step Golu padi to be DIYed to be used every year. It was a fun project and I had fun making the flat pack Navratri steps. If you have not read the post or seen the video, you should do it now.
For this year, given that I was already making loads of lampshades, I wanted to do something unique for display. And that is how the Dasavataram Lampshade idea came about. Knowing that lifting off a design from Google is criminal, I approached Raji Madhu to help me with a design. After dabbling between Durga and Dasavatharam, she finally decided to do one on Dasavataram. While Raji Madhu warrants a full post, I want to just mention that she is a very talented fabric designer who is passionate about art. And it reflects in the interest she shows in imparting that talent to kids and youngsters through her art class.
Now, I am looking forward to show this off to all my guests. No one really noticed my golu padi last year. So this time, I am gonna make them notice this. And guess what ? You too can own this unique lampshade. All you need to do is, go to the Woodooz Shop and book it online. We are also coming up with a digitally enhanced version of the original design which am sure you would love. You will have to wait for our first exhibition announcement for that :)
And guess what ? The lampshade has garnered amazing response and we have been shipping it to all parts of the country. Want to buy this interesting and unique lampshade ? Click here and make your booking NOW.
