Bird In Flight
This is a Brass Bird Hanging, a NHEST favourite! The bird has been handmade in pure brass, and each pattern on the bird has been hand stamped by our skilled artisans. Glass and/or ceramic beads have been used to add colour to this hanging, and its suspended by a chain. This Brass Bird Hanging can be used to adorn your living room, verandah, garden, or any other empty space in your house.
ARTISANS AT WORK
The artisans, also called Luhars, are skilled at the art of brass stamping. They use iron nails, which have a motif engrave on them, be it a simple circle, or paisley. Using a hammer and these iron nails, the artisans scrupulously stamp intricate designs on the base metal. Brass is the most common material that they work with, but also use copper when needed.
Aside from the hand stamping, the other aspect which sets them apart, is the fact that they do not solder pieces together. No form of heat is used to make these products. The artisans use rivets or hinges to join the pieces together.
