I am no artist as my pathetic attempts at art will show you. But when even I can produce amateur art pieces like these handpainted glass plates, you can just imagine the glass art that is produced by master glass artist Raja Azhar Idris.
Raja Azhar Idris is a world reknowned Malaysian glass artist and his house is testament to the love of his chosen art form. Glass is fragile and delicate and not kind to mistakes. Raja Azhar does not only paint on the glass, he moulds them into shapes and gives them texture so it is more glass sculpture than just mere art. I had the honour of touring his house recently and here were many art pieces in there that caught my eye, philistine though I am.
My favourite piece hangs in his kitchen. A large glass plate showing Raja Azhar’s favourite foods of fish head curry and satay and hands reaching for it. Very appropriate choice for a kitchen and I loved the sense of humour it invokes 🙂
I have more pictures of other glass art pieces below. Be warned of large pictures 🙂
