Glass is thought to have come to India with the Muslim invaders. Firozabad in Uttar Pradesh developed as the main center for glass work. It met the royal demand for chandeliers, and made other small products like trinkets and glass vials for perfumes. The craftsmen for this workshop are coming all the way from Muradabad to teach a 400 year old craft.
Glass is a versatile material and is great for organic forms. Glassblowing is a technique that involves manipulation of molten glass with the use of a torch on a smaller scale.
