At Craft Desires we take pride in designing and developing exquisite artwork and premium handcrafted interior décor accessories like vases, bowls, plaques, picture frames, trays, and cutlery aesthetically crafted from finest quality marble. Our artworks enable patrons to make subtle style statements that reflect their distinctive fine taste.
Royal Desires Collection is an exclusive offering that pronounces symbol of elite taste. This exquisite and opulent range is the jewel of our collection, and is fabulously hand-crafted from very high quality premium marbles (like Makrana White, Italian Marbles including Carrara White), semi-precious stones, and mother-of-pearl. This collection offers our Patrons a variety of premium interior décor accessories (such as, vases, fruit bowls, plaques, trays, and sculptures) and elements (i.e. table tops, wash basins, designer tiles) to choose from. In addition, the collection also includes Pietre Dure panels. This collection celebrates Inlay Art that has a very rich history. More on this art can be read here.
Additionally, we get enquiries relating to design and execution of Inlay and Mosaic artwork. We thus undertake commissions of designing artworks and décor accessories according to the décor setting. In such works, we put our maximum effort in understanding the needs of the client. At the same time we put our effort in doing a thorough analysis on what style of design will enhance the beauty of the space. This often demands a great deal of effort on research and design on our part.
Following are the segments that comprise Royal Desires Collection:
Exotica (Interior Décor Accessories)
The ‘Exotica’ Collection embraces marble artifacts enriched with embellishments of delicately inlaid semi-precious stones like coral, lapis lazuli, turquoise, jasper, jade, carnelian, tiger eye and mother-of-pearl. These stones are worked in intriguing patterns that are innovatively conceived and exhibit distinctive style. The collection offers artworks and interior décor accessories like vases, fruit bowls, flower bowls, plaques, etc.
Herein, we use the techniques of inlaying semiprecious stones, called Parchinkari, but with added complexity as our patterns are more realistic and necessitate intensive shading skills. This offers an unforeseen art that is as original as it is exciting.
Parchinkari requires extremely dexterous artisan with high level of patience and concentration. The newness and small size of patterns, together with curved surface of vases present a tough challenge to the artisans. Further, the intrinsic variation in natural materials combined with intuitiveness of each craftsperson delivers each piece that is distinct and unique.
Célèbre (Designer Tiles, Tabletops and Basins)
This collection boasts of exquisitely handcrafted tiles, table-tops and basins made of semi-precious stones and mother of pearl. These interior decor elements make use of any of the following techniques:
- Inlay of semi-precious stones and/or mother of pearl on any solid surface (such as marbles, building stones of various textures and colours, wood) to make a pattern that can be either traditional or contemporary.
- Overlay of a particular type of semi-precious stone like Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, Sodalite, etc. or mother-of-pearl on any solid surface such as stone/ marble and wood.
- Solid Surface finish of agate stones exuberating many bright natural colors and patterns.
- * Additionally, stone carving of various complexity levels can be used to make pedestals for table-tops or washbasins.
Superiorè (Pietre Dure Panels)
This is our most exclusive and exquisite offering to our patrons. Stones of different hues are judiciously put together to make patterns or shaded paintings in stone, making this art of pietre dure extremely difficult and highly priced. This is an extremely skilled art, and only a few master craftsmen have the expertise to create these pieces. The art was enormously favored during Renaissance period in Italy. We use this art of stone inlay (semi-precious and non-precious stones) in its traditional form to evolve wall-hanging panels, the content of which appreciates art themes of yore and paintings made by famous artists. Art aficionados also have the choice of suggesting paintings and designs to be crafted as Pietre Dure panels.
