Anjali Venkat is a glass artist with an eclectic sense of art and design. With over 25 years of experience in different glass-working techniques, she currently practices the art of kiln- formed glass, copper foiled stained glass and glass mosaic. In her work, she puts an emphasis on using post-consumer glass like discarded bottles, picture frames and windows as raw material.
In recent years, she has operated independent art studios in Chennai (2005-13) as well as in Singapore (2013-present) displaying her work at various independent exhibitions and art galleries.
Glass is magical.
It breaks, bends, melts, and fuses – often with a mind of its own.
And the challenge of working with this exquisite medium has captivated me for over 25 years now.
As has my muse – Nature.
What I create, day after day, are my dreams of Nature in her various forms and elements.
While my work is simply my interpretation of the world around us, I believe everyone can discover and decipher their own meanings in each piece.
My passion for our environment has also led me to primarily use post-consumer glass, like windows, bottles, and mirrors. Right from concept to creation, I aim to give these ordinary materials a new life – while giving reality a new twist.
