About Me

An Architect by profession, I fell in love with Glass in London. Having trained under glass artists Brett Manley, Angela Thwaites, Max Jacquard and Gaby Kienle, in varied techniques of Glass making, I have come back to my roots in India to set up my own glass studio.

My pieces exploit the fundamental property of glass to reflect and reveal what was formed in a moment of time. They are experiments in light, colour, material, texture and techniques.  

Mo Ghrá Glass was conceptualised somewhere in the pages of my Dublin diary. A few years later, in a completely different geographical location, I am striving to make those dreams a reality. A believer in preserving our planet, I aim to work with the humble recycled glass to lift it from the skip into our homes.
