Using a fine blade fretsaw tool, the master artisan starts by placing a paper pattern of a complex drawing onto a brass sheet. then carefully does the intricate cutting work following the curves of the pattern on paper. Brass is cut, sculpted and engraved with extreme finesse.
The fretsaw tool, called “serrouj” in Morocco, gives this style of Moroccan lighting a high level of craftsmanship not found otherwise in the standard Moroccan lanterns. The high quality of these Moroccan lamps is enhanced by hand-engraving over the brass metal giving them added texture and beauty.
An art of brassware that is still practiced among fine craftsmen in Morocco.
