For the love of Brass & Bronze

Today, let me talk about our passion for metals - Brass & Bronze to be precise(or
obsession as my folks like to call it *Smiles*) . This is a common interest
between me & hubby. He is mostly into idols. For me, I have no such
reservations. *Grin*

The oldest of our collection is - a lovely brass ornament box which was passed on by my maternal grand mom - older than 100 years...*Smiles*. Most of our collection were brought from various craft curator shops all over Bangalore, some antique curators from Chettinadu, few craft exhibitions & travels. 

I feel the brass & bronze artifacts are time-less & adds an old world charm to our place. I love the yellow gleam of brass urli's, gindis, para & nilavilakku. I love the texture of bronze & the character the metal adds. 

Come along into my home...



Over next few months I will be taking you through our favorite
curators. Hope to see you again next week for the first of the
series..!

How marvelous, yet I bet hard to keep up with the shinning~

I am thinking that you may get more traffic, of you get rid of word verification. This was suggested to me a couple of months ago and you still have total security and rights~

Sujata, it was from one of the exhibitions at Forum many years back. But you should be able to get one from Kairali - Kerala Emporium Showroom
