This summer’s international hot glass symposium – Days of White Glass in Haapsalu, brought to Estonia artists from far and near. To the wonder of the spectators, they demonstrated their ability to handle hot glass. A show of the works executed during the workshop, first exhibited at the Evald Okas Museum, will now travel to Tallinn. During the first weeks of September, a choice of works will be on display at the Gallery A. The countries represented include Hongkong, Canada, and our European neighbors.
The show has two common denominators: first, the material itself – the glass with its milky silence; second, the spirit of free improvisation, play and pleasure. The event site – Haapsalu – has left its signature on the works, of which some refer to the legend of the White Lady, while some have drawn inspiration from the town’s mellow atmosphere.
The confines of space have led us to be selective, leaving out larger works, and also those of a temporary nature.
Opening: Sept.1, 5 pm.
