“It is truly fascinating to allow the hot glass mass to lead one to find its most characteristic shapes while simultaneously keeping the process under control the whole time. The material challenges the glassmaker to break boundaries again and again, and at the same time to remain humble and open-minded, seeking new ideas.”
Glassblower Tero Silver, born in 1982 in Paimio South-West Finland, currently lives and works as an independent glass artist in Nuutajärvi Glass Village.
Electrical power engineering and engineering sciences changed to the fascinating world of glassblowing, when the road took to glass school at Nuutajärvi, in the fall 2008. In 2012, with membership in Lasikomppania started manufacturing his own unique works, as well as designing and manufacturing co-operative collections under the name Amorphia. Tero has also been working as an assist for many local and foreign glass artists.
Tero Silver’s works of glass are based on his endless interest in natural sciences and the mechanics of the universe. As an enthusiast of the natural sciences, he finds that the physics and chemistry of glass together give him much food for thought.
