A Touch of Glass

A glass mural mosaic for floor installation sourced from

There’s something special about the medium of glass. So much can be done with it. Use glass in your decor and watch your space come alive with warmth and beauty. Indian glass work is a craft that has been fine tuned over the centuries. From making crude glass designs to the current intricate pieces of art, glass artisans have come a long way. Popular styles in glass are cut glass and mirror work from Tanjavur and Punjab, stained glass, and glass painting which the Indians learnt from the Chinese.

Here are some great places to source Indian-made/inspired glass accessories for your home.

    What wonderful pieces! Thanks for the sites, Sharon. I dabbled with some glass work about 4 or 5 years ago and am just now getting back into it with some new ideas.

    Thanks Abigail, I hope you got my earlier comment (about the coffee estate on your blog).

    I love the medium of glass too. I used to do some amateur glass paintings. Sadly, they got left behind when I moved home 5 years ago. I must go back, and ask the owner of the house if they are still there! 🙂

    Would love to see your work!
