People who live in glass houses do not throw stones at others. That's because that person can have a clear look at you when you're throwing stones at him. Always do such things hiding behind something. They also say this about glass: Sheesha ho ya dil ho, aakhir, toot jaata hai... while drinking distastefully from a glass bottle.

Although we all know how fragile glass is, yet it is used in almost all walks of life. Such is its liking. Taking this liking to another level is stained glass art. And a veteran in this field is Rose F. Mehta.

She began making genuine stained glass wall hangings, in both opaque and clear glass forms, after a brief tint with glass paintings. Instead of wielding a brush dipped in paints, she chooses suitable colored glass, trims them to shape and then joins them into the desired pattern. This lends her artwork a distinct eye-catching relief. These are then mounted in frames like any painted canvas, without covering it with a glass pane.

As far as possible, she makes her wall hangings in matching pairs; to create harmony on either side of an entrance door and window, or just across a wall. Most of her works are from stained glass design magazines, old masters or of her own creations. This exhibition, which has close to fifty such pieces, is a collection spread over four years.

She has given two live demonstrations of this form of art - once on Hyderabad Doordarshan, as well as on ETV, a local TV channel. She has been interviewed many times by newspapers and magazines. In 1998, while she was in the USA, she took part in a competition organised by, 'Delphi Stained Glass Catalogue,' a leading trade magazine. She won a prize in their 1988-1999 Delphi catalogue, for one of her works accepted and published in their magazine.
