About symposium

The tradition of international glass symposia dates back to 1992. From its beginning it is associated with RONA glassworks. Slovak and foreign artists meet in its premises every two years to make symposium works with the help of glass masters. The program of the symposium will also include training and dissemination actions in the segment of glass art – also involving a series of lectures by renowned Slovak and foreign art theoreticians.

The week symposium will culminate on Saturday, september 10, when the results of the symposium will be presented outdoors in a late baroque manor house – the headquarters of RONA glassworks. RONA glassworks will be open to the general public during the Open day. Visitors will be able to spend the forenoon with a plant tour, watching the glassblowers and visiting exhibitions of current RONA production.

Below you can find participants of symposium, which we will gradually reveal in next weeks.

Tuva Gonsholt

Norway

I usually work with objects in glass. I tend to use sharp and clear colors, to express temperament and playfulness. I focus on the details, such as the light and shadow of clear versus frosted glass, and in various thicknesses of the glass. My pieces are often cold worked with grinding, polishing and sandblasting, to underscore the shapes and details. I create glass objects which are expressive, dynamic and vigorous, but at the same time soft, elegant and feminine – shapes bursting with life.

Anda Munkevica

I WISH TO OPEN THE SPACE THAT IS CLOSED TO FLOW THE LIGHT, WIND AND ATMOSPHERE.
TO DISCOVER INNER STRUCTURE OF GLASS – LIKE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN HUMAN BEINGS…
