Artisan: Suresh Garg

Artisan Suresh Garg

"We are three in the family - my wife, my son and myself. I started this work with no background in terms of my family or training in this field. I have learned from my own experiences. I always wanted my profession to be related to the field of art.

"I started with ivory products, and later switched to sandalwood. The art of making sandalwood boxes is extremely intricate and detail oriented, therefore it requires skilled workmanship. I am the guiding factor for my craftsmen, who create these exquisite boxes and other works based on my unique designs.

"My craftsmen and I are deeply involved with the making of sandalwood products. We also use kadamwood on occasion. Sandalwood has a unique natural fragrance, and is available only in a few parts of southern India. It is quite expensive and one has to be extremely careful while cutting the raw wood, to avoid any wastage. The intricate carving on these products is done with an iron needle. The products are polished twice in the production process. The polishing technique used is referred to as buffing, which gives the products an extremely elegant finish."

Suresh Garg also works in marble.
