The Veen emäntä exhibition by glass artist Marja Hepo-aho is open until Thursday the 29th of November. On the last day of the exhibition, you have a chance to get an introduction to the artwork from the artist herself. Marja will be at the gallery on Thursday at 11-18, welcome! No need to sign up in advance for the artist meeting, feel free to drop by!
The Kyynelvaskooli (“Tear gold pan”) artwork by Marja Hepo-aho turns the idea of a gold pan upside down. Instead of searching for gold nuggets there are drops of tears among a lot of gold. The thought behind the artwork is to pay attention to those details that are often forgotten during the abundance of riches.
All Marja’s artworks are created at our glass studio in Riihimäki. Did you know, that in addition to glass school in Nuutajärvi, she has also studied in glass schools in Orrefors in Sweden and Novy Bor in Czech as well as in The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in
Denmark? Her artwork has been seen in many exhibitions abroad and more is yet to come: Right after the Veen emäntä exhibition ends, her artwork is packed and shipped to Hong Kong for the Design Pier exhibition.
As the evening gets darker, the Finally together lamps glow brighter at the gallery window. These glass and stone combinations are also made by order and customers can bring their own stones to the glass studio. We have a great selection of colors and our talented glassblowers have a wide set of techniques in use, so the lamp or any unique, order-made glass design can be made just the way you like.
