For the first time together at an exhibition

This will be the first exhibition where so many Turkish glass artists have joined together. They will also visit museums and galleries in Helsinki, and exchange information with other artists from various countries during the exhibition process.

Speaking about the exhibition, Y?lmaz Yalç?nkaya, the founder of the Glass Furnace Foundation, said the exhibition would be a great opportunity for collaborations in the field of glass between the two countries.

Finnish glass artists visited Turkey last September for a one-month glass exhibition organized at the Turkish Islamic Arts Museums.
