ARTISANS AND THEIR CRAFT

Brass

Moradabad, east of Delhi, flourished in the 1800s when Brits sent brass plates, cups, and statues abroad, making the artisans highly revered.  Through time, many techniques have been used to shape the metal:  beating it, and pounding it with dies and casting, where In order to mold brass, artisans  create a sand-mold into which molten brass is poured.
