Dreaming of Summer

Dreaming of Summer exhibition wishes to bring you bright summer memories to warm you in the middle of the winter. These pieces glow in vibrant colours from last summer, when they were made during the full and fast bloom of Finnish summer. I hope you give yourself a moment to bathe in the colours and let them bring you some energy that will take you through the dark and into the coming Spring. The seasons change, as do we all, let’s welcome that change with kindness and joy.

Viva Magenta!

The theme of the exhibition is Pantone's color of the year, 'Viva Magenta'. Each of the seven artists have approached the theme from their own perspective and through different materials: how to capture the glow of magenta into glass, ceramics or wood?

Pantone is a standardized international color system, whose color choice of the year is a significant signal of current phenomena. Exhibition is the first collaboration between UU Market and the Finnish Glass Museum.
