“Piece of Cake” at Okapi Gallery

10.09.2020

At this year's Design Night, glass artists will discuss design and art in the collective work "Piece of Cake". "Piece of Cake" is made in a unique technique, typical of Estonian glass art "pâte de verre" (or "glass paste" in French). This gentle, ultra-thin, sculptural, or sugar-like smelting technique, is so common among the glass artists that we can safely speak of the emergence of the school in the second half of the 1990s. Mare Saar's first pâte de verre works date back to 1995.

The artists participating in the exhibition want to highlight the pâte de Verre technique also because this fragile broken glass has aroused a lot of interest among the audience. People are often puzzled by the story - "how does it all come together" and "is it really glass?". In addition to creating a beautiful artifact, artists hope to create positive emotions in human viewers - to design the viewer's experience on the border of art and real-life and to show more closely the symbiosis of design and art.

Maret Sarapuu, Kristiina Uslar, Mare Saare, Piret Ellamaa, Sofi Aršas, Kairi Orgussaar, Marilin Laas, Birgit Pählapuu will perform with their "cake pieces" at the exhibition. All artists will be introduced in more detail!
