ABOUT GORARA

Gorara is a type of Indian Soapstone that is abundantly used for making artifacts by artisans. Gorara stone is easy to carve, durable, and is popular for its heat-resistant properties. Therefore, it is also used as cooking and heating equipment. The articles made out of this stone are different from other stoneworks because gorara stone is softer in comparison to marble and other stones. This artform is primarily practiced in Varanasi using stones that are brought from Hamirpur (in Himachal Pradesh) and Mahoba (in Uttar Pradesh) areas. One of the distinctive properties of Gorara stone is its unpredictable color spectrum which may vary from beautiful shades of gray to bright pink. As the stone is very soft, only small sizes are available for carving. This also limits the sizes of the final products carved out of the stone. The fragile jali work in these artifacts is inspired by the decorations from the palaces in Rajasthan.
