Craft & Design

 

 

Art galleries cannot be brought into every home, but, if all the appointments of our life and furniture of our homes are things of taste and beauty, it is inevitable that the habits, thoughts and feelings of the people should be raised, ennobled, harmonised, made more sweet and dignified.

Sri Aurobindo

One of the Peace Tables of George Nakashima
George Nakashima, internationally acclaimed Japanese-American woodworker, who lived as a disciple in the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, had a dream to offer to each continent of the world: a Table for Peace - yes, a table. A table may be an ordinary object, but in the hands of a master craftsman, especially when one has yogic consciousness, often ordinary objects transcend their limitations and become something else, something that is endowed with great presence, power and meaning; almost sacred. George Nakashima was someone with this special touch who could transform the ordinary into extraordinary. His third Table for Peace, gifted to the Asian continent, found its home in Auroville and remains as a great source of inspiration for Auroville's designers and craftsmen.

 


…what matters most is how things are done;
the conscious intention behind each and every detail...

 


We have the ideal and the reality. In the following pages we present you the story of our Auroville home grown designers and crafts people, their dreams and aspirations, struggles and discoveries.
