Abstract

The arts and crafts of any region are the reflection of its environment, people, and traditions. Rajasthan is among the richest states of the country in the field of arts and crafts are concerned. Stone, clay, leather, wood, ivory, lac, glass, silver, gold, and textiles were given the most brilliant forms. It is the crafts and traditions of India that make it stand out in the world. However, the numerous arts and crafts are slowly getting extinct and so have to be renewed and brought back to life. Wooden blocks used for printing is one such art that is fading, due to screen printing and lack of awareness and a few other reasons. It is such an art which is used for making every piece of cloth, every design unique and different from others yet involving a sustainable process in production. The art, which was once flourishing and attracted customers from all across the world, is now struggling to survive. The artists who have been working in this field for several generations are struggling for livelihood. Incorporating the techniques of block printing along with modern technologies to create an interior space would provide a sustainable solution for both the artist as well as the designer. The feature wall and the furniture is broken down into modules, the wooden blocks used for the printing is used as modules, designed by an artist from their place. Later these blocks are arranged in the site by interlocking together. As designing of wooden blocks is a time taking process, Terracotta will be used for mass production and to obtain seamless patterns yet maintaining the essence of art would reduce the cost and carbon impact on the environment. Thus, provides a sustainable solution for preserving of art, artist, and designers.
