There is a small village called Budithi in Central Srikakulam, a district in
Andhra Pradesh. Here, life revolves around creating beautiful shapes out of
alloys. The shapes range from the charmingly traditional to the elegantly
modern. The art form expresses itself as traditional cooking utensils and also
in forms that suit contemporary needs - like flower pots and planters.
Usually made of brass, the objects have patterns that are geometric, with
straight lines and curves forming simple and striking presentations.
Floral patterns abound too.
