Anna-Kaisa Kukkonen-Madi. S A A R E T Islands

Event organised by Anna-Kaisa Kukkonen-Madi

S A A R E T Islands are mysterious reminders of pure water. The unique mouth-blown glass sculptures hide miniature islands inside. The islands made with steam-stick technique float in the water which reflects them like a mirror. The cut surface of the water is still. "Pure nature is the only luxury we have", Anna-Kaisa Kukkonen-Madi, the creator of the installation says. S A A R E T Islands are based on the artist´s childhood memory.

"I try to find the soul of a phenomen and save it in glass", Anna-Kaisa Kukkonen-Madi (Finland, 1964), a Finnish glass artist says. She lets glass behave in its characteristic way aiming at reduced form with emotion, strength and sensitivity. The artist works with her professional team of artisans in Riihimäki. Her installation S A A R E T Islands is a fragile but strong message for unspoiled water. The innocence of nature is heartbreaking.
