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
Taiteilijatapaaminen Taiteiden Yönä, torstaina 23.8. kello 17-21

Artikkeli Helsingin Sanomissa!

Aika-näyttelyn esineiden valmistuksesta kirjoitettiin Helsingin Sanomien Kulttuuriliitteessä 20.8! Nettiversiossa on myös tunnelmallinen video esineiden synnystä! Hyppää lasistudion salaperäiseen maailmaan ja lue koko artikkeli tästä: linkistä!

“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.”

 

 

Sini in YLE Aamu TV!

Oli jännittävää päästä puhumaan Suomalaisesta lasimuotoilusta YLE:n Aamu TV:hen! Ohjelmassa kohtasi historia, muotoilu ja taide, joten hyvin lyhyeen aikaan saatiin tiivistettyä useita erilaisia näkökulmia! Ohjelman voi katsoa yllä olevasta linkistä.

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?’

Interview in Radio Suomi

Listen the story of our glass mountains at Radio Suomi!

Kuuntele alta Radio Suomessa 29.6 esitetty haastattelu, jossa kerron lasisen vuorimaiseman synnystä ja matkasta maailmalle. 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!

TENDENCE FRANKFURT

 

 

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.

My first piece for the European Glass Festival 2016 is now ready. The main idea behind this piece is a sanctuary for a broken mind.

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.

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.
