Fiberglass Mridangam*

Chi. John Augustine fabricated the body of a mridangam in fiberglass. Mridangams are nowadays being made with fiberglass also and are available in the market. But here in Samithi, we made a  replica out of styrofoam and took its mould in plaster of paris (POP) and them made the body of a mridangam with fiberglass. Chi. John Augustine studies BFA in Hyderabad and working with fiberglass is one of his subjects. Some images here.
