About

REDISCOVERING THE JOY OF MAKING !

Conceptualised by Harshika Amin, this artisan label arrives upon innovations in the art of making objects and things.

Artisan's statement
trivial PURSUITS is a space I have carved out for myself over the last few years. As a physical place, it extends between my hands and my worktable. This small world of mine manifests itself in the stories I weave with my hands.
At trivial PURSUITS each line, curve and edge on the handcrafted object has a story to tell, which makes it like no other. Unique in all its imperfections.
There are two main objectives of trivial PURSUITS. The first is the crafted skill of working with the hand. And the second is that the focus on process of making rather than working with a preconceived form or an idea.

My Philosophy
I love working with my hands, it means a lot to me. The whole process of making is a deeply meditative one. The act of engaging oneself in a process of making tangible things, unveils aspects of us to ourselves, ascribing to a deeper connection between the mind and the body.
trivial PURSUITS is built on the ideology that answers to some extra ordinary questions of life lie within the pursuit of the simple and ordinary.

The name is a satire, an ode to celebrating the pursuit of all things "trivial". It is the pursuit to make one's place in this world.
