Both Mahesh and his father  are State Awardees and have conducted workshops for many design students across NID, ShantiNiketan and other design schools.

This Craft involves  the manipulation of a glass rod over a flame by twisting, drawing and fusing glass at very high temperatures  into tiny animal and bird forms. The skill of the craftsman is tested by his dexterity and the speed in which he can create these forms.

Mahesh and his family have also innovated with this craft to create Jaalis.
