This project examines the intersection of handcrafted glass of Firozabad and the textile craft culture of North-East India to highlight how the geographic separation of the eight north eastern states is connected through the traditional hand weaving practiced ubiquitously. It resulted in a collection of glass luminaires where double layered hand-blown glass is explored in combination of engraving and North East textile. This intersection showcases not only the versatility of the material, it expands the possibilities of material tectonics in luminaire design.
