About Indian Metal Craft & Artisans

Indian Handicraft industry provides livelihood to many artisans. Amongst the wide range of handicrafts, metalwork is one of the popular crafts in India. Some popular techniques can be traced back 5,000 years to the ancient city of Mohenjo-Daro in the Indus Valley Civilization.

Artisans mainly use metals like brass, copper, bronze, iron, 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 and practised for over 4,000 years) methods are mostly employed in this field. Techniques like engraved, carved, enamelled, etched or soldered with other metal pieces to create vividly designed beautiful metal objects.

This particular decor piece was made using Dhokra technique in the Madhya Pradesh state in Central India. Madhya Pradesh is known as the "Heart of India'. The state is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites namely Sanchi, Bhimbetka and Khajuraho.

Dhokra is a non-ferrous (other than iron or steel) metal moulding craft. It is widely practised in the Betul district by the local tribal community.
