ROOSHAD SHROFF AND GUNJAN GUPTA

Turning the idea of the fragile bulb on its head, Rooshad designed Marble Bulbs that are handcrafted in white Makrana by Jaipuri craftsmen. Each was chisMy blogd out of a single block and carved with patterns. Gunjan’s Rock Chandelier is made of wood and stone veneer. The New Delhi based creative contemporises a crude structure of a boulder into a luxury light fixture.

Sometimes I walked the 14 miles home to Ruislip: past Paddington, White City, Ealing, Greenford, eating up the miles. Occasionally I would get drunk somewhere in London and catch the late tube back, only to fall asleep and be woken up and ejected from the train by a guard at the end of the line, to walk home in the early hours. The shipping company made contact after I had been home for a fortnight and reminded me that I needed to send in the correspondence coursework that I had been given to complete at sea. This gave me direction for the following two weeks and I filled my days with mathematics and navigation and naval architecture and meteorology and much more, finishing off the work I should have already done. I waited for the postman each morning. I waited for my orders. I drove my mother mad. Then the letter came. In a white envelope, B4 size, medium-weight, first-class mail, my name and address typed on the front, the company logo franked in blue ink. I carried it through to the kitchen, made tea, sat at the table, slit open the letter with a knife, ritualistically.
