Our members recently enjoyed a unique experience at Ieva Strazdina’s Glass Art Studio in Jurmala. We each made a candle holder on a pedestal and a necklace pendant. The class was difficult, but with Ieva’s guidance, we were all able to make our pieces successfully on our own! The class was very fun – as are all of our events due to the variety of personalities and openness each IWCR member embodies!
Ieva is a well known glass artist and lecturer at Jurmala Art School. Her work aligns with the principle “simplicity is the highest form of sophistication” – the modern blends harmoniously with the old. Her work is characterized by clean shapes and a play on glass with light.
Ieva shared with us about some of her work in museums and a few interesting stories about high status people who own some of her pieces. We are looking forward to another class with Ieva this Fall!
