Multi-disciplinary Artist | Kiln-formed glass . Metalworking . Silversmithing . Goldsmithing . Jewellery Making . Recyclable Materials. Glass is light, Glass is colour, Glass is magic One cannot talk of glass as material without honouring the ingenuity of the craftsmen working in glass in Mesopotamia; the land between Tigris and Euphrates Rivers over 4,000 years ago. They discovered the art of mixing sand, soda, and lime to make material glass, heating it in open moulds and cast into objects. I am a multi-skilled artist driven by earth-friendly recyclable materials, the processes, techniques, and a strong believe that our surroundings influence every aspect of our lives. My world is to create pieces of work that brings joy and happiness through materials and storytelling. I started as a metalsmith but, curiosity of materials and captivating power of glass led me to take courses in Kiln-formed Glass at Westminster Adult Education Service in London, where I explores the intrinsic relationship of glass and metal. 'The alchemy, parallel and hot fusion of both mediums'. I researched, experiments and developed own metal alloys which I successfully mixes with glass and kiln-cast into aesthetic form of art jewellery and objects depicting the beauty of nature and the natural world. These are unique to each piece.

The abstract colours, patterns, and texture are made using the techniques of lost wax casting, core casting and mix of metal alloys. Some part of the pieces are left unpolished inviting a closer interaction with viewer.
