Agra Stone Inlay is a popular craft. Agra is rich in coloured base stones , precious & semi precious stones, and these stones are used as inlays.
The Beehive India has done a few explorations in Agra Inlay Craft. We have made furniture pieces like Dining Table using tiger pattern, Coffee Table using Monsterra Leaf pattern and stools with bird inlays. . We have also experimented with the inlay of stone on wood.
Though Agra Inlay is an expensive craft to work with, still there are many more explorations we intend to do like playing with straight lines, using different colour schemes and developing contemporary motifs. Inlay of metal on stone, brass & stainless steel, is also an idea.
Stone is very heavy and difficult to transport so we are planning a range of stone & steel. We may be out with it soon
