Granada's Taracea

A legacy of the Arab present in All-Andaluz is the Taracea and it is in Granada where the craft shines for excellence. Like all ancient techniques, its origins aren't known with certainty and they are lost in mists of history. It seems it was used two thousand years before Christ in Mesopotamia; then Romans acquired the technique and it was lost after the Empire felt. It resurfaced with the arrival of Arabs that brought it from India. In Spain reached it highest point in the mid-fourteenth century in Toledo and Granada.

The traditional technique consists of empty the selected wood (walnut, rosewood, ebony, etc) using suitable chisels and gouges forming starts or isolated figures and these spaces are filled with the introduction of ivory, now days synthetic resins. A taracea is a piece of art that is now developed in Andalucia, Spain, specially in Granada

Kitchen Universe is proud to offer artisan pieces from Artesanias Gonzalez, an award winner handcrafter located in Granada since 1920
