Lohakam

Traditionally, village blacksmiths or lohars made tillage and harvesting implements such as the plough, sickle, darat, gandasa, axes etc. from cast iron or loha. Iron ore was collected from the mountains, melted in earthen coal ovens or bhattis and the poured form was hammered and bent by hand 

to create the desired form. Over time these blacksmiths began to use Lohakam or iron-craft to create small playful sculpture capturing animals and people. These graceful sculptures became more and more popular.

Artisans now buy iron forms – bars and sheets, from the market, heat them over a dish of coals and then mold the softened pieces into the desired form. Today lohars make both sculptures and usable art as the form is in demand in homes both in India and abroad. Lean, prancing deers, willowy villagers, ornamented key stands, candelabras, diya holders, bowls and trays, the form now lends itself to endless variations.
