Artist in Residence – Elina Salonen

Elina Salonen is a sculptor and glass artist from Finland. Her work is often related to nature and connections between nature and humans.

She is interested in the way we pay attention to the small things in our everyday life.  What captures our interest and how we interact with things happening around us?

She processes things by giving them forms. During her artist residency she is interested in exploring a new environment.

Drawings and prototypes for a series of glass sculptures will be inspired by winter light and surrounding landscape. She is looking for textures and forms that, once transformed into glass pieces, will transmit the feeling of a windy winter day in Skagaströnd.
