Handmade Scandinavian Glass Starting All Over – at Finnish Glass Museum until 1.4.2018 & at Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, Denmark 21.4.-23.9.2018

The exhibition Handmade – Scandinavian Glass Starting all over focuses on the future of glass art and its development. Three museums specializing in glass – The Finnish Glass Museum, Finland, The Glass Factory, Sweden and Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, Denmark, have invited glass artists to show together with the museums what glass art can offer, what is relevant to the exercise of the art form and the future of glass in the Nordic region. This is partly in the form of a travelling exhibition, which focuses on the new tendencies, and collaborations and networks. The exhibition is the first contemporary Nordic glass exhibition in twenty years.


Artist in Residence at Finnish Cultural Institute in New York Spring 2018

FCINY offers working and research periods for Finnish designers, architects and artists through its residency program.

 The main objective of my residency is to create new illustration originals to be used later in my glass art. I use very traditional sketching methods: sketchbooks, pencils, felt tip markers and ink. I aim to fill my sketchbook with urban and novel drawings that are inspired by the whole different visual milieu with its buildings, people and culture. 


Adventures – solo exhibition, Finnish Glass Museum, 7.9.-11.11.2018

The exhibition presents not only my glass art, but also test pieces, sketches and photos along the way. I aim to highlight the story of making itself and the growth of both my technical skills and artistic approach. Graal technique has been a common thread in my work, but more over being glass artist is lifelong learning and continuous experimenting.


Narrative Imagery – Explorations in Graal techniques – at UrbanGlass 10.5.-14.6.2018  

Visit the link to UrbanGlass website for more info.

The Graal technique utilizes decoration trapped between layers of blown glass. We will look into the basics of the Graal: making blanks with layers of color and then engraving and sandblasting the color off to create images.
