discarded glass bottles. Available in all shapes,
colors and sizes, these are sorted, cut, etched
and then it is decided the future shapes that
would be given to these.

of designers and artists help in turning entire collection to intricate designed and detailed work

covers, planters and others. Further, the wood material is also used for creating collages
using glossy waste paper with desired details provided using fused/cut glass.
With dedicated efforts put in to provide in each piece exclusive hand-crafted finish and unique
design standards, the encouragement offered to pursue this art form also helps in contributing

useful display art from widely present non-degradable waste materials. Some of the other
innovative finished products waste material can be turned into include flowerpots by using
shells of coconut, creative art work from matchboxes and others.
Some suggestions that will help enthusiasts to pursue this creative art form include keeping
an eye on trash that goes out for interesting pieces like broken tiles, unused metal pieces,
broken wooden pieces and glass, picture frames and anything that can be creatively utilized
to serve the needs of brilliant creative ideas. Further, if one sketches the ideas first before
pursuing them, this would also help them to work through a more planned way to add life to
this world of crafting art.
