Exhibition

Handmade - Scandinavian Glass Starting all over

The exhibition Handmade – Scandinavian Glass Starting all over focuses on the future of glass art and its development. Three museums specializing in glass – The Finnish Glass Museum, Finland, The Glass Factory, Sweden and Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, Denmark, have invited glass artists to show together with the museums what glass art can offer, what is relevant to the exercise of the art form and the future of glass in the Nordic region. This is partly in the form of a travelling exhibition, which focuses on the new tendencies, and collaborations and networks. The exhibition is the first contemporary Nordic glass exhibition in twenty years.

The project has been funded by Nordisk Kulturfond’s HANDMADE funding program. https://www.nordiskkulturfond.org/en/handmade/

HANDMADE is a three-year funding program run by the Nordic Culture Fund, 2016-2018. Applications are welcome from all art and culture fields that would benefit from working with partners in the Nordic countries - on projects that explore the theme HANDMADE from a variety of angles.
