SCANDINAVIAN GLASS – STARTING ALL OVER
21.04. – 23.09. 2018

’Scandinavian Glass – starting all over’ is a collaboration between three highly estimated Scandinavian museums – Glasmuseet Ebeltoft in Denmark, The Glass Factory in Sweden and The Finnish Glass Museum in Riihimäki, Finland – which aims at redefining the future for glassmaking. The project has been supported by The Nordic Culture  Fund as part of their focus on ´handmade’ art and craft.

The practice and the context of glassmaking have changed dramatically over recent years. Large-scale glass production, which used to be at the core of the economy and development within craft and design, is practically non-existent today.

The collapse of the glass industry has therefore, resulted in a gap, which ‘Scandinavian Glass – starting all over’ aims to fill by a number of activities, most prominently through a touring exhibition, focussing on new and current tendencies within Scandinavian glass – the most comprehensive presentation within the last two years.
