For an interdisciplinary exhibition in the National Library of Latvia, we at GlassPoint were asked to create the glass domes that display the exhibits - no easy request, but we were up for the challenge and are more than happy with the final look. The exhibition „2020: A Perspective on Eternity“ is a collaboration between the National Library of Latvia and

On the 16th of June, the Latvian national museum of art was host to 20 young creative minds. Children between the ages of 4 and 16 came to the museum to not only get inspired by great artists, but to create art themselves. This was the second phase of our collaboration with Bullseye glass, you can read about the first part of the project here.
Last week we were happy to have interior design students from the University of economy and culture visiting Glass Point for a presentation about the prospects of glass. They were introduced to the technical possibilities of the material and got to brainstorm their own ideas.
Sometimes, children have the truest view on the world - this can make them great artists. Glass Point wants to give these small creative minds the chance to shine. On the 2nd of June we will start a new project in cooperation with Bullseye Glass, that has the goal to visualize children’s ideas and turn them into an actual artwork!
In March 2019 we were proud to welcome Gracia Nash in our Glasspoint Studio in Riga. The New York glass and multi media artist hosted a six-day Masterclass. With the help of Nash, the participants got to create their own glass sculptures through flame working and glass fusing. Newcomers to the art of glass were able to learn and experiment alongside experienced artists - and not just about techniques and technical details!
