About Indian Metal Craft & Artisans
Metalwork is one of the many crafts that provide economic opportunities for artisans. Nevertheless, it has existed for centuries in India with its roots dating back to approx. 5,000 years in the ancient Mohenjo-Daro civilization of the Indus Valley.
Artisans mainly use metals like brass, copper, bronze, iron, and silver which are durable and lend themselves well to delicate designs and patterns.
The traditional methods of sand casting & lost wax (locally known as Dhokra) methods are mostly employed in this field. Techniques like engraving, carving, enamelled, etched or soldering with other metal pieces to create vividly designed beautiful metal objects.
