Nepalese Casted Vessels, Decanters and Bowls is one of the most important books ever written on the renowned metal
industry in the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. For the first time, author Matthew *Friedman has brilliantly recorded the “Lost Wax Method” of metal work. Fast becoming a lost art, this book helps to keep the memory of this art form alive in hopes that future generations in Nepal and elsewhere will come to appreciate the splendor of these unique and beautiful objects.
* What is the “Lost Wax Method”?
What is the process of casting?
Who are the craftsmen? * Why is it important to save this ancient art? Friedman intelligently answers these and other important questions. A selection of antique goods still readily available throughout Nepal is also highlighted with an insightful explanation of the cultural and religious significance of each.
MATTHEW S. FRIEDMAN, as a professional in the field of international health, has traveled to over 35 countries around the world. For the past 8 years, he has been living and working in Kathmandu, Nepal as a technical advisor. During this time, Friedman has spent years examining and studying all aspects of Nepal’s unique metal casting industry. He is also the author of two other popular books, The Gorkha Urn and Tara: A Fleshtrade Odyssey.
