The Rann of Kutchch. A desert in northern Gujerat on the west coast of India, that is desert for half the year, and is flooded for the other half of the year! There are vast regions of scrubby tree growth and sparsely populated areas. The gypsy tribes who once grazed cattle here, and later settled in villages, still retain their traditional customs and wear their elaborately embroidered and decorated clothes as they go about their daily tasks. Janmamad Luhar is a traditional bell-maker in this region. He practices a craft that was passed down through several generations, as far back as they can remember! The bells all start out as flat sheets of recycled steel. The steel is then beaten and shaped into cylinders and and joined, without any welding at the seams! The shaped bells are dipped into a copper solution.
