Arpan has tried to express Tea’s elastic and supple appeal to life by using a medium – the lac (natural resin) that is elastic in nature. He achieves a fluid quality in metal and wood through the use of lac. The artist has used molding and casting processes to translate the fluidity of the medium in metal and wood. The artist uses the contrast of rigid metal tea pot and the sudden fluidity in it as a strong image and a symbol for life, relationships and bonding. This very contrast makes the everyday kettle a work of art.
