String of Pearls is a tribute to the glass pearl tradition of Murano, and to the rich colours of the Venetian paintings. Even metallic gold and copper glitters were blown into the pearls, which provide a splendid gold shimmer during the melting process of the surface.
A shade of metallic copper gives sophisticated glitter to this installation of String of Pearls. Blue-black and amethyst colour pearls alternate and give rhythm to the installation. Kaappo Lähdesmäki of the Lasismi Cooperation in Finland produced all the pearls.
