Aimee Sones . August - October 2011

Like many artist-in-residence programs, the opportunity to spend two months in a new environment and experience another point of view was at the heart of this two month exchange.  During this time, Sones continued her practice of integrating photographic work with kiln formed glass. She explored how these two might be integrated through the use of waterjet cutting.

yuka + anjali is a curatorial team interested in the latent connections between glass and alternate / new media. We have hosted two exhibition series so far (in 2009 and 2010-11) and are currently seeking new curatorial voices for the project.

ChoChoma , as the little glassblowing girl is called, is the brand umbrella under which artisan-made glass products oriented towards successful styling and quality, explore new territories. Envisaged to be profit-shared, ChoChoma would like to use entrepreneurship as a gateway to grass-roots level empowerment of artisan communities and skilled employment in India.

Our last round of collaborations in 2004-05 resulted in collections of jewelry. Currently, we are exploring possibilities in custom fabrication and large-scale commissions. Please visit for details, or contact us for more information.
