Simply Obsessive-Dhokra Lost Wax Craft

$72.00

The perforated bag is crafted out of brass in the traditional dhokra technique. A classic example of sculptural excellence, the bag reveals a greater degree of accomplishment and satisfaction on the part of the craftsman. The work is crafted with the ancient dhokra technique, a laborious lost wax process practiced in the region. First, a model is sculpted of clay and dried in the sun; it is then covered with beeswax and more clay, forming a mold. The piece is cast, cleaned and again dried in the sun. Finally, it is heated in the ground for five days and polished.
