METAL CRAFT

The Thathera are basically a community of artisans. Metal work, business and repair of utensils are their traditional occupations. Many of them even cultivate land, and in Bihar, many are also jewellers. In Odisha, they are called 'kansari' and the main ones of this community are the "MAHARANA"s and the "MAHAPATRA"s. Basically, they are involved with metal artisan works like 'brass', 'bronze', 'aluminium' and 'copper' etc.

Metal craft has flourished all over India in different states in their own means of forms and perfections. Metal can be acquired to any form, be it a plate, tumbler, bowl or anything. Metals are transferable from a thin wire to a huge metal sheet, vice versa. Metals are malleable and ductile in nature thus flexibility of usage.
