Pembarti Metal Ware (Pembarti )
Scholars tell us of the age when iron was not known and copper and its alloys were used for making metal tools and objects of daily use. A small part of that age is still with us but mostly in objects of art.
Statues, carvings, and castings still continue to be made in the attractive copper alloys like bronze and brass. Pembarti Metal Ware methods used are still traditional ones although the raw material today comes from modern mines and furnaces.
The craftsmen carve the design with fine instruments by following the lines. Later white paper and lac are removed and the sheet is subjected to further fine carvings and finishing is done on the buffing machine.
Most of the residents in Pembarti Metal Ware are involved in brass work and there are several workshops in the village dealing with brass. From behind the line of tall palm trees there comes the clink and tap-tap of mallets beating brass. Sheets of brass are transformed into marvelous objects of art-all by hand.
