My exhibition Thread of Life is now over, many thanks to the gallery, Gumbostrand Konst & Form – and all who visited the show. Here are few pictures I took before dismantling the exhibition:

Let’s continue with the strange times we’re living the best that we can. I don’t have other exhibitions coming up in near future, but some projects and ideas are active in my mind.

It is last week of my exhibition Thread of Life at Gumbostrand Konst & Form, the gallery is located in Southern Finland, between Helsinki and Porvoo. This week the gallery is open Thursday-Saturday 11am-5pm and on Sunday 11am-4pm. The space is fairly roomy and wearing a mask is required from visitors.

Gumbostrand Konst & Form is presenting my exhibition from 13th of November onward – you’re warmly welcome!

Thread of Life is a collection of my newest work – you’ve never seen these before anywhere else. There are both illustrated vessels with imagery from my time in New York and engraved pieces with light feature. I’ve been working with these pieces for a good year now, and I really hope you will come and see them yourself.

Gumbostrand is located on the coastline between Helsinki and Porvoo, exact address: Vainuddintie 72-28, Söderkulla.

The exhibition extends to 17th of January, the gallery is mainly open Friday to Sunday, but for winter season 18.11.–20.12.2020 Wednesday to Sunday. Do check the exact opening times from gallery’s website konstoform.fi

Here are some photos from my previous hot shop session in Nuutajärvi. Many thanks to gaffers Jenni Sorsa and Matti Vilppula for the most productive day. Such a joy to see how ideas come to life and my drawings get transformed into glass sculptures.

These new pieces, quite a striking collection of them, will be on show at Gumbostrand Konst & Form, art center in Sipoo, Finland from 13th of November onward.
