Company Overview

Dhokra or bell metal craft is a tribal craft that  combines metallurgical skills with wax technique to create things of  distinctive beauty. The same technique had been used by the Mohenjodaro  craftsman to cast the bronze figurine of a dancing girl some 4500 years  ago. It is thus a very old form of craft that is still practiced in  parts of Orissa. Tribal families in villages near Dhenkanal town cast  boxes, figures of gods and goddesses, and lamps using the lost wax  technique. In the process these tribal family have successfully  preserved the ancient Orissa Craft of Dhokra Casting and have taken it to new heights of perfection
