Badami Style Brass Inlay Wall Hanging

A stunning combination of delicate wood carving and brass inlay work. The central motif is almond shaped – known as badam in Hindi. It has been stylised with intricate floral vines which accentuate its beauty. A must-have piece of handicraft that is rarely seen in the market owing to just a handful of artisans remaining who have the skill, ancestral knowledge and perhaps more significantly, the passion to execute it.

Brass inlay is rare artisanship that amalgamates two different crafts, and reverses the traditional printing block so the brass is inlaid into the wood. From a sheesham wood base the basic design is carved and different sized pens used to create the bigger cuts and the smaller dots before the edges are smoothed. Brass wires are then inlaid, by hammering them into pattern flush within the surface. Brasses of separate gauges are used: the thicker gauges for the strong outlines and the finer gauges for intricate design details.

This select piece is done by a master craftsman and award-winning ‘shilpguru’ especially for Arastan.
