  • Dhokra is a craft form dating back 5,000 years,' Cire perdue', or 'lost waxcasting' as it is known, is a technique with 13 elaborate steps, in which a unique cast is modelled in beeswax, moulded with clay & poured with molten metal to create one-of-a-kind statues, that are hand-painted to finish them into perfect decor for gifting & adorning your home. This piece has been handcrafted by master craftsmen from Chhattisgarh.
  • There are two main processes of lost wax casting: solid casting and hollow casting. While the former is predominant in the south India the latter is more common in Central and Eastern India.
  • Hollow casting is the more traditional method and uses the clay core. The first task in the lost wax hollow casting process consists of developing a clay core which is roughly the shape of the final cast image. Next, the clay core is covered by a layer of wax composed of pure beeswax, resin from the tree Damara orientalis, and nut oil. The wax is then shaped and carved in all its finer details of design and decorations. It is then covered with layers of clay, which takes the negative form of the wax on the inside, thus becoming a mould for the metal that will be poured inside it. Drain ducts are left for the wax, which melts away when the clay is cooked. The wax is then replaced by the molten metal, often using brass scrap as basic raw material. The liquid metal poured in hardens between the core and the inner surface of the mould. The metal fills the mould and takes the same shape as the wax. The outer layer of clay is then chipped off and the metal icon is polished and finished as desired.
  • This product is handmade and there may be irregularities and imperfections. This is a natural outcome of the hand-crafting process and adds to the unique charm of the product. No two pcs are identical ensuring you have a piece which is one of a kind.
