BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS
Tartu University Library
March 14 – April 18, 2005
The show presents a selection of works executed at the Skankristall factory 2002-2003 and Tarbeklaas 2004.
We do not see troubled waters at the show; three tough years of work at a struggling glass factory. The show is a bridge – bright and colourful, expressing the author’s belief in the survival ability of the Estonian glass industry. The bridge is a symbolic link from the past to the future, a story of evolution – the evolving mastership of our glass designers and glassblowers.
The centerpiece of the show is a bright red vessel, titled “Moment” (2003) – a memorial to mark the rebirth of glass art. “Sea” (2004) expresses the dynamic of the glass industry’s struggle for survival.
The colourful exhibit reveals no hints of tension and concern. Sea-green, flaming red, sky-blue and sparkling glass characterize the author’s attitude and positive message.
The author will meet the audience on April 4, 16.00 at the library, next to the exhibit.
