SECOND LIFE. Recycling Glass Design from Finland

WAGNER:WERK Museum Postsparkasse


The two Finnish glass artists Jukka Isolta and Jan Torstensson have opted for upcycling processes in glass as the basis of their design concepts. Both use waste glass as material: Isolta works with “cold” processing, in other words techniques such as polishing, cutting and sand-blasting; in contrast, Torstensson uses waste glass formed while it is hot, although not melted. The creative solutions produced by the two designers is on show in the exhibition by the WAGNER:WERK Museum, which was established in cooperation with the Finnish Glass Museum in Riihimäki (on show until 9 Nov.).
