Auli Rautiainen

GLASS DESIGNER

 

 

"Glass is an enchanting partner, occasionally easy to shape and receptive and at times erratic, a little bit like us humans. You should approach glass with beautiful intentions and gentle hands. Then it allows you a chance for a fleeting and unique contact.

My career with glass as my partner has included hectic teamwork in a hotshop as well as solitary concentration in the silence of my own studio. But always the common factor has been color, the everlasting source of my inspiration. With different techniques I get to paint my designs on the glass canvas and frame them with this material’s own yearning for roundness and soft lines."
