Forms in brass, each a story of craftsmanship
Archaeological records reveal that brassware was popular in India since 3rd century BC, however, it wasn’t until the 19th century that this artform flourished into its fullest potential. Usually, brassware items are made collectively by a group of artisans, with each artisan having a unique skill and handling one part of the production process. Therefore, this handicraft is not only an emblem of Indian heritage but is also a symbol of unity and collective living. Passed down from one generation to the next, the skillsets for moulding metal brassware items truly represent the infinite ways in which humanity evolves and uses art to show that evolution.
