Who We Are
I am, Imtiaz Ali an artisan based out of Agra. Working with stone carving since more than 2 decades, I mastered the craft at an early age while learning with my father. At my workshop, I work along with my family and few other artisans to make intricately carved stone lattice pieces using simple tools. Catering to the luxury segment, our products are made to perfection.
Where we work
We function out of our workshop in Agra, Uttar Pradesh.
How we Work
Stone is carefully selected by me. We work with various kinds of locally available variety of stones. The stones are then cut in blocks and the basic form is chiselled out. We then grind them to achieve the right form. The pieces are marked with a basic hexagonal grid and holes are punched (freehand) to begin the lattice work. Special files are used to bring out the intricate (jali work)lattice designs. The geometry in every piece is flawless although made freehand. The pieces are finally polished and assembled. We have also developed simple sophisticated tools to achieve such intricacy.
