Glassmaker Raghvi Bhatia will be an Artist-in-Residence at The Studio from February 17 through March 21.

Listen to her discuss her work and process during this informal lecture on March 12 at 12:00 p.m. 

During her residency Raghvi intends to generate large scale art installations that create a meditative space using the material of glass seed beads. Through this process she will explore the historic connection between glass and religion in a manner that differs from the dominant Eurocentric view of this theme.

Raghvi Bhatia

Raghvi Bhatia is an artist who considers the artistic experience as analogous to rituals: of searching for the sacred, of visiting religious institutions, and of questioning existence. Originally from New Delhi, India, Bhatia is fascinated with the history of glass seed beads. ”The first glass seed beads were made in southern India around the 5th century,” said Bhatia.
