Echoes of the Village

Inspiration

Paying tribute to the Kandha tribute community of the district of Mayurbhanj of the vibrant state of Odisha for carrying the legacy of the Dhokra Art for centuries, 'Echoes of the Village' is a delicacy that is embraced by the exquisite artistry of metal figurines given life through bronze and copper-based alloys using a lost wax casting.

Echoes of the Village

How is it made

The artisans form the clay core which is roughly the shape of the final cast image. Next step is covering the clay core with layer of wax which is composed of ingredients like pure beeswax, resin from the tree Damara orientalis, and nut oil.
When the wax solidifies, in the dawn of the day artisans starts with shaping and carving the mould in all of its finer details of design and decorations. Then again, a layer of clay is applied on it which takes negative form of the wax. Drain ducts are left for the wax, which melts away when the clay is cooked this shows the impeccable design and process of dhokra art.
The wax is then replaced with Brass; it hardens between the core and the inner surface of mould. The metal takes the same shape as the wax. Here the manufacturing process doesn’t stops, then the artisans give his/her finer touches and polish it as desired.
