Article in APU Magazine
Finnish artist Sini Majuri’s work was featured in an article by Marjukka Puolakka in APU magazine. “Technology doesn’t need to be feared. The development of the camera didn’t take away painting; it brought so much more to it. However, we must remember that every technology has its flip side, and we need to take responsibility for the ethical principles behind the technology,” Majuri says.

Sini Majuri’s collection in G12 Gallery
Sini Majuri is set to showcase her latest collection of contemporary glass sculptures at G12 Gallery in Helsinki, with the exhibition opening on April 22, 2023. The exhibition will feature a series of unique blown glass pieces that reflect the psyche and the hidden layers of the mind. While we may appear to be transparent to those around us, we seldom reveal our innermost selves and the hidden layers that make us who we are. Glass is a metaphor for this aspect of our being. Just like glass, we have an exterior that is visible and often easily observable. Just as the transparency of glass reveals the intricate details of its composition and the interplay of light, so too can our hidden filaments be revealed when we take the time to look closely. In a world where we often feel pressure to put on a brave face and hide our vulnerabilities, the glass works mirror the importance of embracing the complexity and beauty of our inner layers.

Article in Helsingin Sanomat
“The yellow robot is lying on the gray floor. Dramatic music starts playing. The robot rotates its long neck and small, sharp-beaked head, rises up. It’s sort of the shape and size of a big dog: like a yellow, metallic Doberman.”

Welcome to ArtMiami 2023!
Welcome to see the Noa Milo sculpture at ArtMiami, Berengo Studio Stand n° AM512! Paradox – Noa Milo is a part of the Infinity Vessel project by glass artists Sini Majuri and Marja Hepo-aho Artists are reflecting lovelessess in society, what happens to an individual when humanity and emotions are disconnected from the surrounding community.
Fragile glass vessel is a metaphor of humanity, how we all are paradoxically broken and whole at the same time. Vessel can be seen as a womb, a lost paradise that we can never return to. It is a surface between an individual and the society. Fetus is the potential and hope sheltered by the insubstantial skin. Glass and bronze sculpture are in balance. Artists are using ornaments from Finnish and Ukrainian tradition. Golden hand painted pine needle is a symbol of bravery as the serpent is a protecting element.

Cassiopeia reflects Scandinavian aesthetics and light through organic surfaces. The design philosophy behind the ‘Cassiopeia’ is to create poetic interpretation of the nature of glass. How it allows to see to the deepness of the Universe though the lenses of telescope and into the smallest details of life in the microscopic world.

Gunnel Nyman themed exhibition opens in Helsinki
Welcome to the group exhibition in Gallery Mafka & Alakoski, Iso roobertinkatu 19, Helsinki at 23.5.-20.6.2019. The opening of the group show will be on Thursday 23.5 at 18 – 20 PM.
“Where’s the secret of the objects?” This is the key question Gunnel Nyman made in her article, Glass, which became her testament for glass artists. 110 years have passed since the birth of Gunnel Nyman (1909-1948). Nyman was a pioneer of the Finnish art glass and a successful female artist. In her exhibitions, she was also the first Finn to highlight the names of glassblowers.
”Missä piilee esineiden salaisuus?” Tämä on avainkysymys, jonka Gunnel Nyman esitti artikkelissaan Lasi, josta tuli hänen testamenttinsa jälkipolvien lasitaiteilijoille. Gunnel Nymanin (1909-1948) syntymästä on tänä vuonna kulunut 110 vuotta. Hän oli suomalaisen taidelasin edelläkävijä ja tienraivaaja, menestynyt naistaiteilija. Lasin runoilija Gunnel Nyman suunnitteli niin taidelasia kuin käyttölasia. Näyttelyissään hän ensimmäisenä suomalaisena nosti esiin myös lasinpuhaltajien nimet.

Sini Majuri’s interview on Glass Art Society
Today’s artist is Sini Majuri from Helsinki, Finland. When asked what draws her to glass she said, “Glass is one of the key technologies that modern science has evolved from – through the invention of the lens. It is a medium that can be serene and wild at the same time. It bends light and has interesting optical properties. So, when I’m working with glass, I have a sexy material that is like no other.

NORDEN – Festival of Cool, Toronto Harbourfront Centre
September 22, 2018 – June 2, 2019
Artists: Sini Majuri, Evelina Dovsten & Kristin Larsson, Bjørn Friborg, Mervi Haapakoski, Renata Jakowleff, Auli Rautiainen, Kirsten Vikingstad Storesund and Ida Wieth
Nordic glass was at a high point in the mid-20th century. Famous glass factories like Orrefors, Iittala, Holmegaard and Kosta Boda; and designers such as Tapio Wirkkala and Alvar Aalto were synonymous with good design and refined taste. This heyday created distinctive identities for all four countries—Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland—and collectively added to the Scandinavian Modern aesthetic.
Sadly, few of the glass factories remain due to market pressures and outsourcing. However, these economic realities have not lessened the association of well-designed and crafted glass within Nordic countries. The situation has given rise to a bright new generation of glass artists and designers; ones with independent spirits focused on self-expression, experimentation and entrepreneurship.
This exhibition highlights a group of glass artists shaping the future of Nordic glass for the 21st century.
Tervetuloa Taiteiden Yönä tapaamaan lasitaiteilija Sini Majuria ja tutustumaan tämän uusiin Aika-näyttelyn teoksiin!
Aika on lasinen kertomus, jossa nykyteknologia kohtaa lasinpuhalluksen perinteet. Jokainen lasiveistos on katkelma surrealistista tarinaa, joka on kuin optisten illuusioiden kautta ratkaistava arvoitus. Kiehtovalla ja erityisen haastavalla tekniikalla luodut teokset esittelevät lasipinnan alla olevia kolmiulotteisia kuvamaailmoja.
Näyttelyn teema, aika, on yhtä moniulotteinen kuin lasi materiaalina. Aika on suhteellista. Pieni hetki voi määritellä koko ihmisen – emmekä kuitenkaan pysty muistamaan edes tärkeimpiä hetkiä täydellisesti.
Veistoksissa massiivinen lasi yhdistetään taiteilijan omakätisiin kuvituksiin, joissa ajan ja paikan ulottuvuudet sekoittuvat. Kun kuvat suljetaan lasin sisään, ne pysyvät muuttumattomina vuosituhansia. Taiteilija kertoo teosten kautta myös meidän ajastamme ja vangitsee sen näin aikakapseleihin tuhansiksi vuosiksi.
Sini Majuri: Aika 8.8.-8.9.2018

“Lasipajan työ näyttää tottumattoman silmään hirvittävän vaaralliselta. Kuolema on läsnä. Laavamöykkyjä kuljetetaan ripeästi huoneen toiselta laidalta toiselle, uunien luukkuja availlaan, tulikuumat metallityökalut sihahtavat kohdatessaan saavien kylmät vedet. Lasinpuhaltajan kämmenen ja 1 000-asteisen möykyn välissä on vain kärähtänyttä sanomalehtipaperia.”

Article in Designboom Magazine
Finish glass artist sini majuri combines 3D-design with old glass blowing techniques in her latest luxury vase collection for dutz collection.
Inspired by nature, the premise of the glass collection is to create objects that gain their value from the quality, design and material. ‘sometimes, a very simple object can be multi-dimensional when using glass as a medium,’ explains the designer. ‘for example, there is the visual layer of glass: how does the glass reflect, and how will the colors look in different lighting?’

Oli ilo kertoa, kuinka Suonenjoen metsistä lähtevä design-tuote pääsi Maaseuturahaston ja Mansikka ry:n avulla Japanin suurimmille design-messuille kesäkuun alussa. Haastattelu myös innoitti pohdiskelemaan esineiden syntyprosessia. On mielenkiintoista katsoa taakseen ja havaita, millainen kuljettu matka on ollut!

KUOPIO EXHIBITION IN YLE CULTURE
The Flying Boat Exhibition in Kuopio got in the YLE Culture-news. It was exiting to tell about the history and the stories behind of the glass pieces! Exhibition was also in the Radio Suomi!
Kuopion lasinäyttelystä kirjoitettiin YLE:n Kulttuurissa. Oli jännää kertoa esineiden historiasta sekä tarinoista niiden takana. Samalla näyttelystä kerrottiin myös Suomi kierroksessa Radio Suomessa, jossa huristellaan ympäri Suomea kurkkaamassa erilaisia tapahtumia.
Gallery G12 Kuopio. Maaherrankatu 9
It was a great experience to be invited to Tendence fair in Frankfurt. My glass design was exhibited in Talents-exhibition. The most important part of the fair was to meet people from all over the World. Many exiting things will be happening in the near future because of the new contacts I made.
Oli jännittävää esitellä lasimuotoilua Frankfurtin Tendence-messuilla, jossa minut oli kutsuttu Talents-näyttelyyn. Messujen tärkeintä antia oli ihmisten tapaaminen ja yrityksiin tutustuminen ympäri maailmaa. Monia uusia ovia avautui ja tulevaisuudessa odottaakin jännittäviä yhteistyömahdollisuuksia!

3-LAYERED GRAAL SCULPTURES
Summer exhibitions are soon opening. I have been working with graal’s that have 3 image layers on top of each other. These super thick pieces need 10 day annealing, so next Thursday will be really exiting day when the annealer is finally opened.
BLOWING THE FIRST PIECE FOR THE EUROPEAN GLASS FESTIVAL 2016
The theme for the European Glass Festival 2016 is Jekyll & Hyde. So something ominous and bloody is about to be blown under the layers of glass. All the invited artist are creating two glass sculptures with this topic and it has been truly interesting to strive to use glass in a bit twisted way. Today I was working at Mafka&Alakoski’s Glass Studio in Riihimäki. We pondered about how to create blood splatters inside the glass but still maintain the sculpture poetic, mystic and fresh. The solution was to add spoonfull of red colours on two layers of the glass sculpture.
The exhibition will be held in Wrocław Poland, European Capital of Culture 2016 in 15.10.2016 – 23.10.2016. After this the exhibition will tour in Łódź (the City Art Gallery in Łódź), Legnica (the Art Gallery in Legnica); Jelenia Góra (the Karkonosze Museum, Krakow (the BB Gallery).
EXHIBITIONS IN HELSINKI, POLAND & NETHERLANDS
I’m delighted to be aboard in so many interesting glass events in 2016. My first solo exhibition in Helsinki opens in June in contemporary art gallery G12. There will be a glass story about a woman that finds herself in a dream with flying boats and swaying rooms. G12 has been a year-long project during which I have found new depth to the glass and added layers over layers using my beloved graal-technique that has it’s 100-year anniversary in 2016!
In June I will take part in group exhibitions in Gumbostrand Konst & Form and in Maila Talvio Salon. At the moment I’m blowing a group of playful glass carousels for Gumbostrand. Romantic Maila Talvio Salon exhibition will gather together works from earlier projects and cooperations: Tulintu Class Comic shall fly again!
After the summer the heat continues: In September I’ll take part Glasrijk Tubbergen 2016 in Netherlands! Two glass artist from each European country will be invited to the Glasrijk and it’s a great honour to be one of them.
In October begins the European Glass Festival 2016 that has invited 16 european glass artists to participate! It is great to be in this amazing event that will be held in Wroclaw, The European Capital of Culture 2016! The festival-exhibition will also tour in Łódź, Jelenia Góra and Legnica.

The story begins: Once upon a time there was a young prince who fell in love with a bird, which he would never be able to capture.In September 2015 our Comic Art in Glass exhibition opened up in Finnish Glass Museum. YLE ‘s Cultural Cocktail-production made a documentary about the glass cartoon, as well as the manufacturing process of the sculptures. The documentary was titled: Magical cartoon come to life inside the glass. In the video we also visited the Finnish Glass Museum exhibition, as well as the wonderful Mafka & Alakoski – glass studio in Riihimäki.
