Tasmanian Flora

Last year I spent two months in Tasmania and had the opportunity to study local plants. This series of engraved glass pieces is inspired by colors and plants of Tasmania.

Tasmanian Flora 2018


The Finnish Lifelong Learning Foundation – KVS rewards every year one person or a group who has done significant work to promote education in Finnish society.

The prize is Finnish contemporary art. This year it was glass sculpture from my Tasmanian Flora series.

In 2018 the annual Education Prize was given to Panu Pihkala. Congratulations!
