About Sini Majuri : Born 1983, glass artist Sini Majuri works in Helsinki, Finland. Her works have been exhibited in the USA, Japan, China, Europe and Canada. She has also been awarded for her work at Beijing Fashion Week in China. She combines 3D-design with old glass blowing techniques. Many of her works are surrealistic stories captured inside blown glass.
STATEMENT OF ART:
In a way glass is one of the key technologies that modern science has evolved from – through the invention of the lens. Glass is a medium that bends light and has interesting optical properties. So, when I’m working with glass, I have a wild material that is like no other.

As an artist I see myself as a storyteller. It’s my passion to bend the glass material in new ways to reflect something unseen. Lately I have been mixing up 100 years old techniques with 3D design.

The reason why I’m working with glass is because it’s a rare and magical medium. It reflects the world around it, bends light and has interesting optic properties. When I’m blowing glass the material is alive until it is frozen into it’s final shape. In a way it is like a wild animal that you need to tame. The sense of magic that it has makes it a perfect medium for creating solid dreams.

When I’m preparing an artwork I’m trying to catch a dream inside the glass. Many of my sculptures can be seen as cartoons or fairytales. The process is like a puzzle that starts from sketching the idea and collecting interesting details from the world around me.

You also need to think three dimensionally and think how the different layers look when they are nested on top of each other. There are 3 to 6 image layers in my recent works and the most complicated ones can take a year to finish. As my creative process gained length, I have been getting closer to each creation. They have more hidden levels in them, such as messages and illustrations that can only be seen from the exact angle and in certain light. I hope that the works make the gaze wander, and get lost into the works.
