Jenni Sorsa

Master of Glassblower / Bachelor of Arts and Design

Jenni Sorsa graduated from Häme University of Applied Sciences in 2007 with a major in glass. After her design studies, Jenni has completed five various degrees for glassblowers in Finland and Sweden, most recently a vocational qualification in glassblower master 2020 (Tavastia Vocational College). At the beginning of 2014, Jenni founded a company called Jenni Sorsa Glass, whose activities include glassblowing and expert services for other designers / artists, as well as glassblowing experiences. In addition, Sorsa blows her own art glass and small series products.

She describes her work as follows:

“To me, glassblowing means self-realization and constant challenge. Glass is a material that always lends itself into something new, and the glassblower’s ‘education’ is never truly finished. It feels especially rewarding to have exceeded oneself when working with glass. I enjoy the atmosphere and heat of the hot shop. I am a former dance enthusiast and perhaps for that reason, I experience a sense of success when everything in the working group proceeds smoothly as though following the choreography. Every member of the working group knows his or her role, knows the steps towards the complete performance. Rhythm is an essential part of glassblowing, as glass neither waits nor gives in.

I get my inspiration from my childhood toys, circus art, and sometimes space age culture. ”
