Mira Bowl and Chain Artisans (India)
Talented metal bowl and bike chain artisans from Moradabad, India create these beautiful bowls from recycled metals. The artisans collect metal to create the bowls. Then they will clean them to prepare them for use. Often, men and women work together to create these pieces. The women shape the letters that will go on the bowl and the men will weld together the words and shapes. The skills are passed down from one generation to another. This is often the only way a mother and father can provide from their families. Because of fair wages this they are able to bring home enough enough money to support their entire families and send their children to school to receive an education.
