Once a sleepy hamlet along the Kandy-Colombo road, Pilimatalawa takes pride in the manufacture of brassware handicrafts. There are also other villages scattered around the country where craftsmen communities exist.

Most of the designs engraved on brass and copper surfaces are not traced beforehand, but done spontaneously with expertise on their nimble fingers. Brassware is produced in to main techniques. Wrought and cast. Bowls, tea services, trays and ornamental ware as well as decorative ware are produced in wrought technique.

Traditionally, oil lamps, elephants, ash trays and vases are used for ornamental purpose as they add a touch of glamour, value and richness to any interior décor. Religious denominations like Buddhist and Hindus use statues of Lord Buddha and various Gods at worship. 

Brass oil lamps are used on auspicious and ceremonial occasions. The larger lamps could be as tall as 2 meters, usually with a cock bird, peacock or a swan at the apex, adorning the creation. Such taller lamps can be in most cases dismantled in to six or seven pieces.
