Marble Handicrafts

What is the first thing that comes to mind whenever we hear the word marble handicraft? There is only one thing that comes to our mind – beautiful designs handcrafted by talented artists to make our existing spaces more elegant and aesthetically pleasing. And just like every other handmade product it also reflects the creativity, artistry, and knowledge that the artist possesses and his experience in the field which can make all the difference.

Marble inlay is a closely protected traditional art and only a few experts are skilled enough to do justice to it in this day and age. The delicate process involves carefully cutting and engraving marble shapes by hand. Roughly speaking, this is how it works.

One of the things that make the Taj Mahal so wondrous and special is the marble inlay work you find on it. In fact, you find this beautiful art form on other Mughal monuments too.

To begin with, a predefined pattern, like say, a floral or geometrical design is engraved on the marble slab. After this, small pieces of marble of different shades are cut delicately to precisely fit and slipped into these grooves. Apart from marble, many other materials can also be used to adorn the marble inlay spaces.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the types of natural stones normally used for inlay on marble: White Jasper, Chocolate Stone, Green Marble, Sang-a- Mariam, Tiger Stone, Red Jasper, Lapis, Green Aventurine, Yellow Aventurine, Black Onyx, Green Bidasar, Dark Green Bidasar, Brown Bidasar, Yellow Bidasar, Cobra Stone, Malachite, Ruby, Jaiselmer Red (Heated), Jaisalmer Yellow, Cream Marble, Alikantak, Green Laventure, Torques (Firoza), and Amethyst.

Once the inlay work is completed and has dried, it’s time for the surface and edges to be polished and shined. To give it a shine that lasts for decades, the polish work is done using a stone bar. It is now ready to go.
