Where craftsmanship is concerned, beauty begins
beneath the skin. As the name of the collection
suggests, these surfaces feature thin layers of metal overlaid on previously shaped sections of stone.
The desired forms - from fossils to ferns to water lilies - are first hand-crafted in each slab of limestone or quartzite. Next, a wooden hammer
known as a mogri is used to carefully beat the sheet metal - brass, copper, aluminium or white metal - until it perfectly assumes
the shape of the stone underneath.
Then as a final touch, randomly selected areas of the metal are antiqued very slightly to create an attractive “reclaimed” look.
Mastering the craft
The finest metal is placed on the most conscientious of craftsmanship to create intricate patterns. What starts out as delicate stone carving is then covered by a layer of metal that is delicately hammered in place, to create both visual depth and subtle texture.
