Glass Handicraft

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 28 September 2010 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Met this extremely talented Galss blower, who was making amazing models and structures from a combination of blowing and hand crafting.

Alhough this wasnt "blown", I chose this model because, it seemed very "topical".
Yes, you have guessed it right.
It is a glass idol of Lord the making.
