I was visited by Pragya Awasthi – Senior Manager, and the head of Procurement and Design at Curocarte India, who flew in by private jet to visit my work shed and pottery in Halstead. Now it's not everyday you are contacted by someone from India, so I made sure of a very warm welcome. In fact the weather was quite apt being a bit of a sweltering Indian Summer type day, although Pragya thought it was a bit chilly compared to Mumbai.
Suffice to say, I must say how lovely Pragya was to deal with, and in fact all the representatives of the company I corresponded with. I was paid a very handsome price for my first shipment of work and I couldn't ask for any more.
I felt really honoured and quite flattered to be visited today. Curocarte is an online design and craft start up funded by Aditya Birla, and the business launches in the USA and Indian markets from September.
