This series has its origin in Florence, from the architecture and the interior of the first exhibition of Markku Piri in the Palazzo Medici Riccardi, among others from the Michelangelesque staircase in the Palazzo. Here, the artist wanted to create respectfully, but also with a little smile, objects which are timelessly archaic in their forms, and lush in their decor. The ancient glass tradition and the artistic ideas of the present times greet each other in a grand manner.

When A Bottle of Captured Pleasures has no cork, is there a possibility that the pleasures might escape? In the archaic series, the idea was to create objects with full, vibrant character. The shape, the details, and the surface treatments are all integral parts of the whole Glass Art Object.
