Baaya crafted an origin story in copper enamel for a vegetarian restaurant that wanted to highlight its inspiration - Hotel Samudra, Pune. The origin story was told primarily via copper enameling, a craft that is native to Maharashtra, in mixed media murals. In each mural, a carefully-cut piece of copper enamel was placed over a wooden disc. The theme explored was the gifts that came out of the Samudra Manthan or the churning of the ocean.
