A TRUE INDIAN HANDICRAFT ART
Fussion of an ancient western art-form with Indian Art-sophistication within tradition.

It is common place to find art forms as merchandise in the market. Arne de verre started with the intention of presenting 'art' in its pristine form. The art form commonly known as stained glass can be traced to 11th/12th century. It is seen in the old churches, palaces and castles in western Europe. This was then further designed, by cutting and putting together pieces of coloured or painted a framework to anoint the interiors & exteriors of homes & buildings alike.

It all began in French. The cutting & painting of glass-with original detailing; a combination of the two. Louis Tiffany brought this art into homes with panels & lamps, using the glass cutting technique.

While Art and Art forms are not only well known in India, but in recent times have witnessed a heightened awarenesds, there is needed to create awareness of the art of stained glass. Stained glass can enrich the urban landscape, and given the crunch for space in the crowded metropolie, can result in significant aesthetic value addition even in the most compact of living spaces.

Tiffany lamps also are pieces of art-using modern medium of colored glass made in glorious diversity and adding more than just "light" to the urban ambience. Its economics is equally valuable. It has potential for export, due to its highly 'labor intensive' nature, particularly given the high value for hand crafted pieces in the developed markets.

A stained glass artisan works under close supervision of the artist who has created the design blending colors & materials to create an aesthetic wonder. The art is such that two stained glass lamps (individually designed),can never be the same, since each reflects a mood- an expression, distinctly different from the other.

Example: A lamp, once designed can be reproduced (just like a painting), but such reproduction is not the original. Hence the originality of stained glass can neither be replicated nor compromised ever. The economic value of a piece of stained glass can be measured in terms of the labor cost of the artisans (which is 70%) and the cost of the glass and other material. The aesthetics and beauty of the design-the artists expression-is however priceless. A design once made is intellectual property-it can be copyrighted.

Stained glass work can be taught without any great difficulty. As is now accepted (this was always known to the Indian wisdom) any expression in colors can be therapeutic-ancient Indian heritage uses color therapy for treatment of the human mind, since it rejuvenates the mind with a sense. of "peace & well being". Stained glass Art is one of the finest mediums to let colors work their magic.
