Sculptural Light No. 28

Milla Vaahtera

In 2020 Milla Vaahtera started a series of unique sculptural lights made out of brass and hand blown glass.

"I have focused on mobile art work for the past few years and this series with light is a natural continuum of that work. These lights are all unique and made by a very intuitive process. The creative process of joining methods of art to traditional areas of craft is the most important thing to me in my work. Traditionally craft has been an area where professionals avoid failure. Lack of failure makes them good. I'm revolutionary in embracing failure in the craft process. I always find new techniques via failure. Failure is not opposite to success, it's a necessary part of it."

Vaahtera began to work on the series of mobiles in May 2017 together with glassblowers of Nuutajärvi. The method was based on dialogue with the glass artists, improvisation and intuition. With these works, Vaahtera wants to revive the Finnish heritage of glassblowing, on behalf of which the Dialogue series is a statement.

Glassblowers: Paula Pääkkönen, Sani Lappalainen, Otto Koivuranta, Jukka Viuha, Penna Tornberg and many other glass blowers from Nuutajärvi.

The metal parts: Silversmith Kirsi Kokkonen together with Milla Vaahtera
