Teemu Salonen

Glass sculptor

Teemu Salonen considers himself a hermit, taking refuge in a small and serene village, a place where he can fully immerse himself in his work. After graduating as a carpenter, he continued his studies and became both an artisan and a designer. What drove him was a desire to master as many materials and techniques as possible. In turn, this has enabled him to think outside the box. Teemu learns the methods and then follows an unconventional path. He questions everything. In doing so, he ponders how he can create differently by reinterpreting the material and producing new and surprising forms. He calls his works “design jokes and straight-laced examples of craftsmanship”, they encapsulate the juxtaposition between tradition and innovation.
