Its been a year since I wrote my first blog to introduce Glasshopper. 🙁 Haven’t been writing at all. The year 2009 which still continues to be…. has been really busy for me. Some bigger projects of stained glass panels in Bangalore… mainly restaurants has kept the ball rolling.
Glasshopper has extended its work in Pune and Hyderabad too 🙂 feels good to have done projects outside Bangalore before Glasshopper gets a year old.
Its year end and Christmas is on its way…. and I wanna welcome it with unique Christmas tree hangings and hampers in Glass painting and stained glass. You can see my work being displayed at The ‘Community Services Bangalore’ Christmas Bazar at the ‘Lalit Ashok’, Bangalore on the 1st December 2009 and also at a fairly bigger Christmas bazaar event hosted by ‘The Overseas Women’s Club’, Bangalore at ‘The St. Marks Cathedral’ on 5th December 2009 from morning 10 till evening 5.00 p.m. 🙂
It is more challenging to craft the little things in glass than the bigger panels…. its the test of your neatness, cleanliness and cutting of glass and I simply love doing that.
Hope to continue writing….
Do hop in for the events mentioned. 🙂

I wrote this blog in 2008, when the Glasshopper was born. Reposting the same here, as I continue to blog on my own website. This was really the first public appearance of Glasshopper to showcase its original tiffany style stained glass.
Perhaps you know the story of Michelangelo, to whom a painting was brought by a young painter for his comment. Michelangelo merely changed the shape of the eyebrows and eyes. This radically changed the portrait. Said the painter, “You made so small changes.” Exclaimed Michelangelo,” Small things make the difference.” Against the backdrop of Architecture, stained glass may appear a small thing that if captured colours, it adds grace to the architecture and changes the aura and the internal vibrations of the Vastu.
Started by Tiffany, it is now accepted by all those who want to beautify their homes – without making it look gaudy. Those who want to beautify their homes by just doing small things are now turning to the use of Stained glass. It can be on any one of the windows, entrance doors, kitchen or ceiling to imbues the Vastu with soothing colours.
May I invite you at Glasshopper’s to witness our effort in stained glass work?
Little gift ideas in stained glass to beautiful and unique lamps, something unusual and unique out of scraps to large window panels, glass panels, cabinets and huge lanterns.
Please come. Let us exchange ideas on how we can be creative in our own way. My medium is glass… let us find yours.
