There’s nothing like a grandparent’s pride.
Simon Waranch, a 21-year-old glassblower and full-time art student at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, shared footage of his elderly grandmother reacting to his art displayed at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts in Texas.
“Savta!” Waranch calls out, using the Hebrew word for grandmother.
“I’m so excited for you,” she replies through tears, as she views her grandson’s blown glass exhibit for the first time. “You’re so incredible.”
The sweet clip has since been viewed over 5.8 million times and racked up tons of comments from TikTokers wishing she could be their grandmother, too.
“You must CHERISH her!!” one wrote. “I miss my grandmother everyday and wish I could show her my achievements in my life in person.”
“This is the type of love we all need,” said another.
“I wish my grandma was still around to see my art,” commented a third. “She meant everything to me- i hope you cherish moments like this!! shes clearly so proud of you.”
Waranch routinely shared mesmerizing glass-blowing on TikTok with his 21,000 followers. Check out some of his work below:
