About

Studio Lasifaasi presents glass made by a Helsinki/Turku based artist Laura Aalto-Setälä. She is looking the traditional world of glass art from an unconventional point of view: trained as both a scientist and a designer, she is constantly working at the borders of art, science, and design. When not blowing glass, she is doing research on glass chemistry in Åbo Akademi University, in Turku, Finland.
