KANSA, also known as KANSYAM or KANSA, refers to a traditional type of bronze or Temple Bell metal alloy that holds cultural significance in India, particularly in the region of Western Southern Middle States of Indian Empire(AKHAND BHARAT). The alloy primarily consists of copper and tin. KANSA has been utilized for centuries to create various items ranging from utensils and cookware to religious artifacts and sculptures.

The art of forging KANSA objects is deeply rooted in Indian tradition and craftsmanship. Skilled artisans employ techniques passed down through generations to shape and manipulate KANSA into intricate and functional items. The process typically involves 23 different operations including heating, tempering, scrubbing, Lathwork and more to a malleable state and then carefully hammering and shaping it into the desired form like KANSA Bowl, KANSA Dish, KANSA Spoon, KANSA Glass/Tumbler and different KANSA Utensils and Artcrafts. Artisans often embellish KANSA items with decorative motifs or engravings, adding to their aesthetic appeal by crafting different shapes of design called NAKASHI.

KANSA is revered in Hindu culture for its purity and association with certain rituals and ceremonies. Overall, the art of forging KANSA objects represents a rich tradition of craftsmanship and cultural heritage in India(BHARAT), showcasing the ingenuity and skill of its artisans.

The use of KANSA can be traced back to the Bronze Age, around 3500 BCE(Before the Christ), when copper and tin alloys were first developed by early ARYA(INDAIN) civilizations. KANSA utensils, cookware & religious artifacts is believed to have been one of the earliest metal alloys used by ancient Indian societies.
