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.
