| Creativity in Glass : Aakruti
success story of Aakruti Glass Crafts dates back to the year
1991, when it was started by the husband and wife team of Anil
and Sushma Shah. "I graduated from the J J School of
Art in 1984-85 and only 5 years later did my fascination for glass,
lead to it becoming my vocation. My husband, a mechanical engineer,
helped with the technical aspects of the trade. We went through
no formal training, but learnt only through experimenting, through
trial and error methods," says Sushma Shah, the
creative mind behind Aakruti.
with a two-person team, the glass crafts company has expanded today
to a large team of well trained, motivated artists and craftsmen
catering to varied requirements of architects and interior designers
not only from Mumbai, but across the country and abroad.
the years we have been adding various new innovative processes to
our already comprehensive process portfolio: the latest being glass
fusion, glass slumping, real stained glass, beveled clusters, sand
carving, acid etching, glass moulding and imitation stained glass.
We are also working on exclusive glass furniture. We are the only
company in Mumbai to produce textures in fusion," says
a proud Sushma Shah. She adds, "We have set ourselves a
target to be the most customer service oriented studio by the end
of the millennium."
These varied artistic glass pieces cost anywhere from Rs 35/- to
Rs 3000/- per square foot depending on the process involved.
