Sacred Trees 2017, unique glass artworks, featured at Voipaala exhibition

This is a busy month indeed, my art and design items are going to be featured in various events in Finland and abroad:

Signals -exhibition at Habitare Fair, Helsinki, Finland 13-17.9.  Signals trend exhibition focuses on the future trends and weak signals of interiors, living, lifestyle and design. The phenomena are mirrored through larger megatrends and societal changes. Signals is curated by Susanna Björklund and her team, and it is part of Ahead!, the design area of Habitare.

Scandinavian Glass – Starting All Over, The Glass Factory, Boda, Sweden 30.9.-29.10. The exhibition shows the innovative trends in the handmade Nordic glass right now, for example in interactive smart glass, innovative project-based forms of cooperation, product development and business models.

 

Two of my artworks After the bees have gone and Stressed Out are now on display at Kiskép Galéria, Budapest, Hungary. The small gallery is located on Buda Castle Hill, one of the most scenic and historic parts of Budapest.  The gallery exhibits a variety of works from Hungarian artists and is worth of visiting. The address is Országház utca 8 and it is open 10am-6pm daily.

Both of artworks were made last year during Finnish-Hungarian glass art symposium in Bárdudvarnok, southern Hungary. They both present a variation of Graal technique and they were made in  co-operation with glassblower-artist James Carcass. I’ll be visiting glass studio in Bárdudvarnok again next month and looking forward an inspiring time there.

And an another thing, possible plans for next year: I decided to apply for ARTROOMS 2018 – an alternative art fair in London. They offer selected artists to exhibit in a hotel room for few days to put up an exhibition – and I have a pretty neat vision of some glass and light artworks I’d like to present there – if selected.
