My research investigation into the emerging genre,'Performance craft' continues to develop steadily since 2016.The  process of bringing clay and Bharata Natyam together to create a dialogue continues to fascinate me. Academic presentations on this theme continue to be delivered  to interactive audiences, thus enabling me to extend the boundaries of this on-going enquiry.I share some related images below.
