THE STRANGE BEACH - MARJA HEPO-AHO
THE STRANGE BEACH
This brand new series of artwork is formed by several small sized pieces combining glass with golden decorations and little treasures from nature. Findings like stones, pieces of wood, tiny bird skulls and cones transform My approach to the glass pushes the limits of the art and functional glass. I aim to bring the freely mouth blown unique, high-quality handcraft to everyday use. Water is an important element for me works as my sculptures often explore moving, frozen and raining water.
I find the combinations of hot glass and natural stones intriguing. By bringing these two elements into one, I can continue thousands of years old shapes to contemporary glass. With detailed engravings, I able to create decorative textures and illustrate stories on the glass.
