Renata Jakowleff is a Helsinki based glass artist. In her latest Furs series Jakowleff works her material in a painterly manner, creating artworks that focus on the optical qualities of glass.
Furs are made by mounting thousands of tiny glass items on a base. As light travels across the surface the work constantly changes its appearance.
Jakowleff has been working with her material in an experimental way, challenging herself to create new techniques to work the material cold or hot. Keeping focus on the materials inherent quality, Jakowleff has been able to define new interpretation of glass series after series.
