IMAGE GALLERY KEYWORDS YOUR VIEWS

The craft community of Gujarat has been involved in taming metal and using its malleability to their advantage. Metal or ‘dhatu’ is crafted by both metalsmith and masons in different stages of metal production. Different techniques have been mastered to perfect the work in metal and yield a range of quality goods. The wires and sheets of these metals have been used to create monumental material objects such as temples. Household items of daily are also produced with a mix of metallic and stonework such as in furniture. Besides these architectural inventions, metallic wires are also produced to adorn garments.  Embossing metal with wood, stone and other raw materials have developed into fine art for every stratum of the society.
