Brass & Glass Bud Vase
Trees black against the night and in the light of the silver moon, the night lilies glow in a gold-rimmed glass.
Craft Type: Metal Work
Archaeological evidence shows that brass has been used in India since the third century BC. Where the ancient craftsmen made sculptures of Hindu gods and goddesses using a naturally healing five-metal alloy called panchdhatu. Considered to be the most sophisticated, Brass cutlery is still preferred among affluent Indian households. Our immigrating artists operate in Moradabad, the largest copper making region of India, rightfully known as the Peetal Nagri (Brass City). Where they use advanced technologies like electroplating, lacquering and powder coating to create contemporary metalware adorned with time-tested designs --- an absolute treat for the modern-vintage soul.

- First, molten glass is inflated with a blowpipe to form a glass bubble, which gives it a bulbous shape. Each piece is mouth-blown individually by our craftsmen.
- Then each piece of inflated glass is moulded into a shape according to its utility.
- All our shapes are largely inspired by traditional Indian utensils. Which is why this glassware is also well-known as Indian Hand Blown Glass.
- Also, it's interesting to know that, in keeping with the other forms of the Deva collection, our shapes have been kept very simple so they can complement other materials as well.
