Viivi Lehto is introducing a range of playful glass sculptures entitled Garden Series during VDF’s collaboration with Ventura Projects.
Exhibitor: Viivi Lehto
Project title: Garden Series
Viivi Lehto is an artist and designer based in Helsinki who creates playful artwork that offers “whimsical versions of reality”.
She is currently developing Garden Series, a collection of colourful glass sculptures, which is launching as part of VDF’s collaboration with Ventura Projects.
The Garden Series takes its cues from nature, and explores the themes of inner growth and the importance of play. It has also been developed by Lehto to aid her understanding of traditional crafts, with each piece handmade using the free-blown technique.
Photography is by Markus Peltomaki.
