De sidste snekrystaller

DE SIDSTE SNEKRYSTALLER (The last snowcrystals)

Is a installation adressing the 12th UN global goal: Sustainable consumption and the 13th UN global goal: Climate action.


The installation is made with the intention of raising awareness to the global climate crisis, using the image of melting snowcrystals as a symbol of the global warming.

As a glassmaker I face the dilemma of  glassmaking beeing an energy consuming material, forcing me to think of how I can contribute with more sustainable solutions. For this reason, I chose to make this work of secondhand objects:


The installation is made of secondhand glass objects, functional plates and ashtrays produced in mainly danish glass factories during the 20th century. Some objects have been reheated, distorting their shapes. The objects themselves holds a high level og craftmanship: made in handblown, and pressed glass, with many coldworking details, such as cut decorations and handpolished details you would not see in factory made glass today.


Measures: app. 110 x 230 x 50 cm.


The installation was  made for the exhibition Global Goals X Art, an exhibiton with 27 artists interpreting the 17 UN Global Goals, in Gallerie Lorien, Copenhagen 2019.
