Client Name : Centre of Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship, IIM Ahmedabad
Location : Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad
The Canvas :

An incubation centre for start-ups and entrepreneurs. A space that nurtures talent and helps young, bright entrepreneurs transform their ideas into successful businesses. A place where ideas abound and innovation is the backbone.

The Craft :

Gond from Madhya Pradesh

Inspiration :

This ‘Gond Art inspired’ tree encapsulates the broad vision of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad as reflected in its logo. It symbolizes the Institute’s commitment to nurture innovation driven entrepreneurial initiatives through its Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE). The birds and icons depict the start-ups and their sectors respectively. Conceptualized by David Gray, a ceramic designer from Scotland and brought to life using the traditional Gond painting technique by artisans Kaushal Prasad Tekam, Sambhav Singh Shyam and Kalabai Shyam from the tribal areas of Madhya Pradesh, this Gond-Ceramic fusion is the result of a three month long DICRC-IIID Ahmedabad Innovation Fellowship Programme 2014 entitled ‘Narrative Ceramics’. This is a collaborative project by Design, Innovation and Craft Resource Centre (DICRC), CEPT University, Institute of Indian Interior Designers (IIID) Ahmedabad Chapter, CraftCanvas and ClayClub. In that sense the tree captures the spirit of collaboration as well.

Challenges :

The mammoth size of the wall was daunting. Also it is an exterior installation that needs a weather proof material.
