Courtyard ⚛ Auruville Brass Martaban ( Small ) ⚛ 13
Courtyard by Aline creates hand- crafted products in brass, copper, silver and iron by using traditional metal-smithing techniques. An interplay of a variety of techniques makes each Courtyard product unique, displaying a diverse mix of textures and designs.
While Courtyard products are designed for the modern consumer, they maintain their innate craft sensibilities, reminding us that each piece has been created by a skilled artisan.
Aline started with a vision to support and enhance hand-skilled urban poor and give them an opportunity to respect the dignity of the craftsmanship they have left behind. We take inspiration from these skill sets and develop products in metal, retaining the core human involvement.
Some of these traditional skills include Thathera (Hammering), Sume ka Kaam (metal needle work), Jaal Katai (Hand Piercing), Chetai (Hand Embossing), Meenakaari (enameling), Kalai (Hand Cleaning), Billai (Wire & Sheet Rolling).
These ancient processes have been reinvented to bring back the warmth of the hand skilled worker into a Courtyard product. A typical product for instance would be a combination of 2-3 such processes and the end result is unique.
