The Maisema (Finnish for Landscape) are a study of creating a painting like impression with coloured glass. The rectacgular base of the works is carefully balanced and supported in the kiln during the glass firing. This creates the subtle movement of the molten glass resulting into an almost aquarelle like expression.
Circus reliefs are my latest exploration of combining coloured glass with ceramics. The ceramic base of the works is inspired by the shapes of antique circus arenas. Coloured glass is applied on the grooves of the base to create a gradient of different shades.
Pools is a series of works in which I have explored further combining glass with ceramics. In the work of the series, I have utilized the runoff of liquid melting glass during the firing process. The works have pool-like recesses of different depths, between which the glass mass flows and mixes during the firing process, forming surprising patterns and color combinations. The State Art Deposit Collection has redeemed two Pools for its collections.
Magic Ponds is a series of wall reliefs in different sizes that I have been working on since 2016, creating works of various scales. The works are inspired by the ponds of rock formations, where you can see a wide range of colours in different seasons. The works are made of stoneware clay, to which coloured recycled glass is combined in firing process. The Espoo Museum of Modern Art EMMA has redeemed at set of four works for its collections.
Wells and Springs
In these works I have combined different shades of coloured and clear glass in order to create color gradients and transitions. In addition, I have explored the effect of variation in glass thickness on glass cracking.
