As rightly said,”Great things in business are never done by one person but they are done by a team of people.” I believe in today’s world ,team work plays a very essential role as it helps in learning by collaborating various ideas ,skills thus enabling us to look at the future challenges from various angles.
Thus, after I finish a master piece, for a good sculpture to take shape, a skill based team with utmost dedication and commitment is required to making a mold and converting it into a durable medium like metal or fiber glass.
Through careful and meticulous work of my craft team I create intricate detailing in clay, in a durable medium without losing its authenticity.I along with my team, Suraj. B and Ramachandran are continuously striving to work hand in hand to carve out each hyperrealistic model into an exquisite piece of art.
