With only 5 artisan families left into its making, the craft of Turquoise or Ferozi is nearing its death in Kashmir. The art form is named after the Iranian Turquoise stone, which was initially used in its making. Later, Ladakhi Pashm stones were introduced into the craft. The process typically involves embedding the “Pashm” or “Hakkih” over a fiery hot base of copper or bronze and then painting them Turquoise. The Ferozi craft is elaborate and each piece has to go through a tremendous amount of heat for the actual beauty to manifest itself. Jewelry, artifacts, decorative vases and bowls and ashtrays are typically conjured out of it. Kashmir Box – Turquoise Collection
