Eco friendly designs by Anjali Venkat

We live on a island with limited resources and have no where else to go..That island is our planet earth..We should try our best to take care of it..The easiest way is to recycle, reuse and recreate..Today I am introducing to you all a fantastic artist who creates beautiful items with recycled material.. Her name is Anjali Venkat-a incredible glass artist from Chennai,India. Her art is funky, boho-chic and functional!!!!


She transforms discarded glass bottles into planters, CD racks, wall clocks, center tables... ...reclaimed wood and old magazine and calendar papers to create functional art. Each piece is hand-crafted and is therefore unique in its design and execution.

 A glass bottle flattened and drilled to make a planter.. would look beautiful as a centerpiece on your table in living room or even the office.. 












                                          A gorgeous plate to serve fruits or starters...







  These candle holders/ diyas are perfect for the coming Diwali season...

This rack would add color and spark to any plain or dull wall....

Another masterpiece decorated with tiny fused glass pieces..

All you lucky guys who are living in Bangalore can see her work in person. Anjali Venkat and Shetal Parrek are holding an exhibition of these and many more beautiful functional art works at the Chitra kala Parishat at Bangalore. It starts from 24th to 26th September. 











You can see more of her beautiful and creative work on her website Anjali design and  on her facebook page here!!!
