"My friends call me a perfectionist. I like to do things perfectly in every possible way. <br><br>
"I was born in the Gujarat in 1984. Although I studied business management, my desire to do something fascinating led me to take up furniture design. I am originally Rajasthan and, since childhood, I was mesmerized by the beautiful and intricate carved designs in the forts and palaces. Initially, I didn't know anything about this art. I joined some classes on furniture making and, with hard work and strong determination, I started designing. This art gave me the ability to prove myself and boost my confidence of succeeding in life. <br><br>
"I first designed tables with the help of my wife, who helps me and also looks after quality. She gives a lot of insight into new materials and how to use them. We have a workshop and a team of assistants who give shape to my designs. <br><br>
"My work is traditional as well as modern. Every day we come up with new designs. I get inspiration from many things. It can be elements and patterns from nature and animals, the intricate <i>jali</i> work and carvings in Rajasthan's Mughal buildings, and also from the digital world, digital designs and digital content. <br><br>
"I use different types of wood, bone and resin and like a lot of colors. We obtain our wood from responsible sources. Wood has a long life cycle. Once a piece of furniture is created, the user can enjoy it for decades and it will still serve him. It can last for a very long time if taken care of. <br><br>
"What I like best about my art is that it makes me think in different directions as I try to come up with new designs. I like to develop ideas and objects with different materials, and wood and resin offer many possibilities. As an artisan, one can use a variety of treatments in polishing, cutting and giving shape to the material. I pay a lot of attention to details and make sure that they match the design. <br><br>
"The team of artisans who collaborate with me are innovative and expert, and I'm happy to be able to offer employment to members of my community. <br><br>
"This journey in the arts has been very challenging and fruitful. I've met so many wonderful people from whom I learned a lot of things to survive and prosper in the world of crafts. I'm thankful for the opportunity to show my designs globally."
