Khatam is an ancient Persian technique of inlaying. It is a version of marquetry where art forms are made by decorating the surface of Pedestal Sweets Dish Khatam with delicate pieces of wood, bone and metal precisely-cut intricate geometric patterns. Common materials used in the construction of inlaid Pedestal Sweets Dish Khatam are gold, silver, brass, aluminum and twisted wire.
IRAN ART EXHIBITION: Designing of inlaid Pedestal Sweets Dish Khatam is a highly elaborate process. There are sometimes more than 400 pieces per square inch in a work of average quality. In each cubic centimeter of inlaid work, up to approximately 250 pieces of metal, bone, ivory and different kinds of wood are laid side by side, glued together in stages, smoothed, oiled and polished. Inlaid articles in the Safavid era took on a special significance as artists created their precious artworks. Woods used include betel, walnut, cypress and pine.
