Gravur – Back on tour – presents new European glass engraving art. I am proud to be part of the show with two of my art pieces. The exhibition is held at European Museum of Modern Glass, Rödental, Germany.

Here’s a very nice video from the exhibition (in German, but you can enjoy the visuals anyway) :

My work in process…

In early September I was participating in a workshop organized by the Finnish Glass Museum in Riihimäki. The workshop followed the opening of Back on Tour -exhibition of modern engraved glass in Europe. The exhibition is a real cornucopia of new engraved glass and I highly recommend to visit!

The workshop itself was instructed by glass artist and engraver master Wilhelm Vernim at the premises of Lasismi studio in Riihimäki. The gaffer of the workshop was glassblower Korbinian Stöckle alongside with Lasismi’s glassblowers. Week’s theme was Graal, which is fairly familiar to me, but I’ve still got a lot to learn on these engraving techniques. Many thanks to all for a great week!

My graal piece in the state of hot sculpting. I think I will title this work as Snake Orgy…
