Scandinavian cool

  • • Sini combines 3D design with old glass blowing techniques
  • • Her studio is located in Suomenlinna, an inhabited sea fortress in Helsinki
  • • Her works are surreal stories captured inside blown glass

Sini Majuri works as a glass artist and designer specialising in ancient glass blowing techniques. She has received multiple design awards such as a golden A’Design Award in Italy and has held over 60 exhibitions internationally. Working through an expressive medium many of Sini’s works have a true poetry about them. Sini creates interior design objects, modern custom made light sculptures, mountainous glass landscapes and contemporary narratives in glass. For Sini glass represents endless possibilities to express moods and feelings that might be difficult to represent with words; glass can be weightless and strong at the same time. Her work often combines 3D design with an expression influenced by comic strips.

Gemini
