Ikebana art in glass vases 1.-4.2.2018

Last spring we were all charmed by stunning flower arrangements made by Ranka group. We are more than happy to tell you it is time to enjoy ikebana art again at Gallery Mafka&Alakoski in the beginning of February.

Ranka group led by Ikebana artists Liisa Nurminen and Jyrki Setälä will create flower arrangements with unique glass vases they have designed themselves. The vases have been mouth blown by Glass artist Marja Hepo-aho and Master glassblower Kari Alakoski at Glass studio Mafka&Alakoski located in Riihimäki, Finland.

Visitors have a chance to see how ikebana arrangements are created:
