Fine Brass Inlay Wall Hanging Set

This gorgeous set of four plaques has a versatile application – the pieces can be framed, fitted into furniture or directly embedded into a wall. These stylised plaques have intricately worked abstract floral motifs with arches and curves. 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 set is created by a master craftsman and award-winning ‘shilpguru’ especially for Arastan.
