Ivory inlay work set in dark Indian Rosewood displays a modern interpretation of Warli folk art to create a wondrous amalgamation of two distinct traditions.

Rosewood inlay from mysore vase

Rosewood Inlay

The great Indian ruler, Tipu Sultan was a patron of the exquisite Rosewood Inlay craft. Indian Rosewood  (Dalbergia latifolia), is a dark, rich wood native to the Indian deciduous forests. In Mysore, the wood is inset with bone to produce intricate inlay work of the highest quality. The traditional motifs depict the splendour of the Mysore landscape, rife with elephants and coconut trees. The concentric circles and detailed geometric patterns make this craft a perfect blend of old world charm, infused with modern aesthetic.
