    Merry Bubbles: Covid Outside, Joy Inside

    Corona has forced us into a bubble, against our wishes.

    This bubble is made up not just of walls, disinfectants, masks but also of alienation and listlessness. In such times, small acts of reaching out and self-care are nothing short of a life-affirming commitment. My work is intended to aid such small acts.

    During lockdown, I found great comfort in board games played with my husband. It was one of the things that kept us sane.

    My pots comprise simple & fun dice game to be played either by yourself or with a partner; an escape from the mundane and the chaotic. I believe the greatest anti-dote to gloom of covid is a child-like disposition to life where we find our house a new.

    When in a funk, all you need to do is roll a dice and do as suggested by the “Merry Bubbles” pot.
