We are a glass studio.

As humans, we wish to inhabit spaces and are moved deeply by objects that speak to us through beauty. At ChoChoMa Studios, we are a small team of makers who believe that glass has the power to permeate our environment and enhance our experience of the world around us.

We are the only artist-run, hand-crafted glass studio in the UAE.

We custom fabricate glass at ChoChoMa Studios.

ChoChoMa Studios is directed by a tight team of artists, exhibitors, curators, craftsmen, designers, engineers, manufacturers, architects, and makers. We harnesses over 10 years of working with both hot and cold glass across four continents.

We conceive and produce one-of-a-kind handmade works in glass that are not available anywhere else. It is our mission to introduce to the world location-specific installations and captivating glass works.


Why Dubai?

Dubai is a city that knows no limitations. As a city of constant growth, we are inspired by the unique energy and ambition that surrounds us. Every day, feats of architecture, engineering, and design are achieved, surpassed, and exceeded in this city. Similarly, we see no limitations to what can be achieved with glass, architecture, and craft.
Not only are we the only artist-run, hand-crafted glass studio in the UAE, we are the only glass studio whose artistic and decorative products are also safely laminated. By working with ChoChoMa to create your next design project, you are ensuring that you are receiving a one-of-a-kind, Emirates-made, handcrafted item.
