Artist-in-residence for Finnish Cultural Institute in New York

I am in NYC Babyyy! I am staying in Harlem for a two month residency through FCINY.

During my stay, I will be practicing my craft in Urban Glass which is a non-profit Glass community in Brooklyn.
I am taking few classes and just learning about making neon signs, small sculpures and tableware! My goal is really to get to know other flameworkers, as in Finland there are not that many. 

So far I have already learned so much! I have been here for 3 weeks and time flies, I have to say.

Finally here! Last year, The Protoshop 2021 was postponed again and finally this year it was possible to organize the fair.
My experimental glass pieces under the name La morale élastique are there on display. Check out the Block area for some emerging design potential coolness.

I cannot be present at the fair myself, but feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my work. Oh and send me pictures! ︎︎

Thank you for Imu design, Elina Aalto & Saara Renvall and Krista Kosonen, for all the work you do for us.
