Vuoksi drinking glass & desert bowl captures the movement of a fluttering fabric inside the glass material. Each glass has it’s own breath because the movement of the cloth-like colour is frozen inside the glass during the glass blowing process. Made in Riihimäki, Finland.

Glass cartoon is made with 100 years old glass blowing technique that is mixed with modern 3D-design. Each glass sculpture has multiple image layers on top of each other under the surface of the glass. Surrealistic dream scenes are captured inside the glass to last forever. Glass cartoon has been exhibited in New York, London and Toronto.

 

Silent winter landscapes, heavy snow and darkness of the Scandinavian night are the main inspirations in the Polar night lamp. The lamp has multiple nested glass domes that filter the light in various ways playing with the variation of dimness and brightness.

MAILA- TALVIO SALONKI

9.6. – 21.8.2016. Vanha-Koskipään kartano, Hartola

The romantic Maila-Talvio Salon is located in an old country side mansion in Hartola. I’m participating the summer exhibition with some poetry-themed works from the years 2013 – 2015.  There will also be our Comic Art In Glass-exhibition in Itä-Häme Museum that is very close by the salon. The salon is one of the few Finnish art exhibitions that is fully organiced by the local municipality.

NUUTAJÄRVI

Peep show -Toinen todellisuus. 28.5. – 14.8.2016. Nuutajärven lasikylä, Vanhan hytin halli

Open 29.5.–14.8.2016 at 11.00 – 17.00

Glass has been manufactured in Nuutajärvi longer than anywhere else in Finland. The glass village is internationally known for the glass and the picturesque environment. So the summer exhibition in there has also very unique theme: it’s a peep show. All the works are hidden inside black wooden boxes and you need to peek trough a small peep hole to have a glimse of the art exhibited.

LONDON

Tales on glass exhibition shows fairytales that are captures between layers of glass. The logic of dreams and surrealism are the main inspirations for the exhibition. The storylines come together from bits and pieces that slowly evolve like songs or poems. The stories are blown between layers of glass by using a century-old Swedish Graal technique that is mixed up with modern 3D-design. The layered images are created layer by layer during a slow process that takes months.

Tales on glass exhibition is a fairytale under the glass surface. It’s about an animal that travels inside our dreams and bends time, until the dream lasts forever. There is always something hidden in each glass sculpture. Secrets that are revealed only when looked from the right angle thought the glass material.
