India Today - - SIMPLY GUJARATI -

Wonky Works is the brain­child of city based en­tre­pre­neur Ekta Doc­tor, who de­cided to lit­er­ally mould her pas­sion for glass into art and de­sign. The stu­dio cre­ates unique de­signs in glass that are un­like reg­u­lar glass works. The shapes are quirky and im­me­di­ately catch the at­ten­tion of a reg­u­lar per­son. “In the age of fac­tory- man­u­fac­tured per­fect­ness, we cel­e­brate the odd fish, the cu­ri­ous and the funny, the pe­cu­liar and queer,” says Doc­tor whose set up is a breath of fresh air in this world of mun­dane de­signs. Apart from glass, Doc­tor’s team has ex­per­i­mented with other ma­te­rial as well. They have dab­bled in lights and chan­de­liers made from metal and are work­ing on projects with other ma­te­ri­als also. They re­tail home dé­cor prod­ucts, with wire mesh lights, lamps and plat­ters that are all sold at af­ford­able prices. Each col­lec­tion has a core idea run­ning through it. The col­lec­tions to watch out for are The Hang­ing Shad­ows ( wire- mesh lights, bot­tle lamps), All U need is a Bot­tle ( twisted de­signs made out of bot­tles) and Wonky Melts ( dec­o­ra­tive hand painted and moulded pieces of art). Their prod­ucts can be or­dered on­line or picked up from their stu­dio in Vado­dara.
