"Hello, my name is Lalit Sakhuja and I was born in 1941, in West Punjab, once in Pakistan. I have always been very keen on arts and crafts. When I was in school, I used to take different art classes including painting, clay modeling and carpentry. However, in those days art and crafts were not considered a good career option, so instead I studied Chemical Engineering at Delhi's Polytechnic. This was regarded the ultimate career option for those who had a good grade percentage. After getting my degree, I did a special two-year Post Graduation Course at Mumbai IIT.

"I worked for a governmental department. I remember once there was a contest within our office to show the teamwork and efficiency of each department. I monitored our department and we won the contest. It was a thrilling experience!

"I kept up my interests in arts and crafts during that time, especially mosaic work and paintings. I consider myself a self-taught artist. After I retired as a Chief Manager in 1999, I decided to take up my passion more seriously.

"It has been six years since I began my so-called artistic venture, and it feels great! I specialize in mosaic work and stained glass painting. I once was commissioned to do a three by six foot mosaic work of a running horse for a private firm, which has been greatly appreciated. I have also done a couple of exhibitions, and participated in specialty bazaars.

"I am 60-plus now but, as the saying goes, there is no end to learning. I definitely want to keep on learning and exploring the art world. I am very glad to be associated with Novica. I hope Novica customers appreciate my work."

"Beautiful mirror but arrived damaged"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The frame is gorgeous and clearly handmade with care. I would have loved it except it arrived damaged in two ways, in spite of lots of paper and cardboard packaging. The wooden piece at the top of the frame is loose and worse, the (very cool) clay-colored grout was shaken loose in two places and there are gaps/cracks between the tiles there. I have powdered clay at the bottom of the frame. I wish there was a way to regrout in those places. I will hang the mirror and expect it to look beautiful but I am disappointed that it was damaged in transit.
