Stone carving jaali
- The stone used to make this craft is very soft so it requires only finger pressure to chisel the design.
To begin with, the stone is boiled overnight and then waxed. The desired shape of the piece is created using hand-tools. Holes are drilled in the marble structure using hand drill. These holes are then finely shaped using chisels to form a jaali(open-work). And finally, the piece is buffed to finish.
The special thing about this craft is that these are made from 1 block of stone and nowhere any joint is given.
