Magnifying glasses, champagne glasses, stained glass windows in Gothic cathedrals, glass skyscrapers – these are all part of an opportunity-filled world that is revealed to the freshmen in the Academy’s Department of Glass Art. Glass as a material provides an excellent and respected means of expression for artists, designers and architects.
• The faculty members in our department are internationally recognised artists; while our students are enthusiastic, and love their speciality. The sustainability of the department is based on Estonia’s long and strong traditions of glassmaking, and on a team that is focused on innovation.
• Every person is special and exceptional. The boundlessly diverse forms of expression that are possible with glass provide everyone with the opportunity to find their own way – to find themselves.
• The Academy’s Department of Glass Art is the only place in Estonia where students can acquire a thorough education in glass art. And the fact that glass is necessary is apparent from the world around us.
