The Venice Glass Week 2019: 3D Graal. Dreams drowned in the glass by Sini Majuri
For The Venice Glass Week 2019, the hall of the Hotel Saturnia & International hosts the new project by Sini Majuri “3D Graal. Dreams drowned in the glass ".
The artist combines the Swedish technique of Graal glass, in use for over 100 years, with modern 3D printing. Drawing inspiration from the versatility and optical properties of this ancient and noble material, Sini Majuri develops a surreal narrative caged inside a thick glass, which contains some hidden details that are only visible from specific angles. "In my artistic work I try to capture dreamlike visions inside the glass, by combining different settings inspired by the real world. The representations inside the glass will never change color or fade, but will last forever , and this is why I want to capture something precious. " said the Swedish artist.
