Yurt Crown Decoration

The art of the yurt crown and traditional design 

 

 
Yurt art as found on some of our amazing crowns is a specialism unique to our workshop. From time to time we are asked to paint and decorate the central crown of our yurts. We have done this for many people over the years. For some examples - Painted Crown Gallery
 
We are very lucky to have the services of a time served sign writer, wagon painter, and all-around artist. 

Each crown is beautifully prepared and painted over a 10 day period. 

This traditionally painted crown is first given two coats of the base red, a traditional Mongol colour, in a matte finish.

Next Andrew stencil the design. This particular design is derived from a sourcebook of 100s of original Mongol designs that came directly from Mongolia. It is popular with our customers.

Andrew applies the colour and builds up the pattern bit by bit until each colour has had three coats.

 The result of all these hours of work is a beautiful piece of artwork.

Skills of the artisans


The art of yurt making is most accurately understood in the heart of Central Asia. Journeying around Kyrgyzstan I was intent on discovering the secrets of the craft and the spirit of those who made them. I wasn't to be disappointed.

Yurt Workshop Customer Comments

Richard Everiss, Yorkshire Planetarium:

The Ger itself is simply a thing of understated beauty...the care and attention which has been lavished on it during its construction is evident. Rather like finding a smooth pebble on a beach, so Robert and his wife Ratna have handcrafted a building that is wonderful to touch and feels naturally balanced.
