Made by Tirtha
Tirtha is 39 years old, and is a highly skilled repoussé artisan. Since the earthquake of April 2015 damaged his family home, he has been living with his wife and their child on the outskirts of Patan, though he misses his old neighbourhood. He works from a room in his home. Having worked with metal since he was young, he later decided to learn the craft of repoussé, which requires tremendous dedication and patience. He is passionate about the need to continue this craft, which was once the speciality of his community.
