To raise funds for the international glass workshop “Maritima” in Haapsalu, the Estonian Glass Artists’ Union organized an internet auction in cooperation with OSTA.EE web auctioneer. The workshop took place June 8 to July 4, 2004, at the E. Okas Museum, as part of the city’s 725th jubilee celebrations; everyone interested in glassblowing had a chance to witness masters at work. A show of the pieces created was opened at the same location.
The auction took place May 17-26; 14 members of the union donated over 70 works in glass to be sold at the auction. The works ranged from valuable showpieces to affordable trinkets, from brand new to 30-year-old. Participating artists included Silvia Raudvee, Aet Andresma, Mare Saare, Kersti Vaks, Viivi-Ann Keerdo, Eha-Pilvi Jõgi etc.
