Gangtok, November 16, 2017: Naturenomics a three day exhibition of artworks to introduce, educate and aware the youths that you can earn your living through nature, began at Titanic park here today.

Two women local artistes – Anupa Rai and Chimib Ongmu Bhutia have displayed their works at the exhibition.

Anupa is a clay work artiste. She started clay work in 2014. Her works are non-functional, decorative pieces and flower plots. Most of her works are Raku fired, a form of technique in ceramics.

“My works are completely non-industrial. The stuffs are not wheel thrown and everything is free handmade. Immense hardwork is required and it is very time consuming. Investment and space is also equally required,” she said.

Anupa added that she prefers being an artiste rather than an entrepreneur. She sells her products from her home Pabyuik Naitam in East Sikkim and also from one of the stores in Chowrasta, Darjeeling.

Anupa will leave for Kolkata in the last week of November for potters market.

Likewise Chimib Ongmu Bhutia makes home decor and lifestyle products under her banner Lagstal. She is into the trade for the past six years and also works in association with Ministry of textiles in the Northeastern region.

“I am more into promoting style of Sikkimese handicrafts under my banner Lagstal. I feel we can create so many interesting products from the Mother Nature. I prepare my work from bamboo, wood and dry plants. It requires patience, creativity and time,” said Chimib.

The artiste duo expressed their happiness on today’s response they got from the people and have appealed to people to come and visit their store.
