In English:

These Glass paintings have been made on courses by ordinary people. Our winter is long and dark. All of the people do not want to look at their television all the time, but they want to learn things on many courses. So they go on some adult education collage once a week during autumn, winter and spring. When all the different types of courses finish, then there is an exhibition in April.

En español:

Estos Vitrales han sido hechos en cursos por personas ordinarias. Nuestro invierno es largo y oscuro. Todas las personas no quieren mirar su televisión todo el tiempo, pero ellos quieren aprender cosas en muchos cursos. Así ellos pasan a algún escuelas populares para adultos una vez a la semana durante otoño, invierno y primavera. Cuándo todos tipos de diferentes cursos terminan, entonces hay una exposición en abril.

En francais:

Ces vitraux ont été faites sur les cours par des gens ordinaires. Notre hiver est long et sombre. Tous les gens ne veulent pas regarder leur télévision tout le temps, mais ils veulent apprendre des choses sur differents cours. Ainsi ils vont a quelque école populaire pour adultes une fois par semaine pendant l’automne, l’hiver et le printemps. Quand tout les types différents de courses finissent, alors il y a une exposition au mois d’avril.

  1. Bonjour Matti,
    J’aime beaucoup ces vitraux qui égaient en beauté les fenêtres. Chez nous, on en voit très peu en dehors des églises !
    Je te souhaite un bon week-end.

  2. I’m always amazed at what beautiful objects people can make…I love that little glass house with the star over the front door! As always, thank you for the story Matti.

    • Hi Tracey.

      Well, if I confess, so am I too. I appreciate very much those people who know how to do and what to create by their hands these things.

      Thank You leaving Your comment.

    • Hello Tamara.

      Thank You. Think that all of them are made by ordinary people who love to do things by their hands.

      Bon week-end á toi aussi.

  4. All of these are just beautiful. I’m not sure I could pick a favorite, but I do like the little house. I think it’s wonderful that so many talented people used the long winter months to create such beautiful works of art. It’s even more wonderful that you are able to share them with us.

    • Hi George.

      Thank You. I appreciate Your comment. It is not important to select one favorite, but to enjoy the beauty what people create during long winter months.

      Happy week-end!

  5. What a wonderful use of time during the long winters! Those folks created beautiful things and at the same time learned very much! As I looked at each one of your photos I thought “I like this one best”, only to think the same thing when I saw the next one! They are all beautiful!

    • Hi Montucky.

      Thank You. You said it so nicely. When regarding these, on cannot throw away the idea, they have imagination and they are presenting their personal view.

      Happy week-end!

  6. Beautiful photos of Glass art. I chuckle a little with what you said about the winters and something to do. I teach watercolor and drawing to the community during the winter, here.🙂 My favorites of the above were the blue cat and the lady in the tub. What fun!

    • Hi Lesley.

      Thank You. It was so nice to read that You teach watercolor and drawing. You are doing very valuable work. It delighted me that You as a professional liked these. I’ll continue this series with porcelain painting after two weeks, but before that, I’ll present next week art which is 6000 years old.

      Happy Sunday!

  7. Bonjour Sartenada,

    Ce sont de belles œuvres, ces vitraux. C’est également une belle activité à réaliser durant les longs mois d’hiver, je suis d’accord avec toi. J’en ai déjà fait, il y a de cela très très longtemps et j’avais bien aimé. Merci de nous partagé de si belles créations.

    Amitié, Anne

  9. The people who made all these glass art are very talented, and you made a great post showing their work here. This has also become quite popular in Denmark these days (I did a weekend training course once!) – but it is rare to see so many beautiful things as in this exhibition here. Beautiful🙂

    • Hello Truels.

      Thank You for Your visit and comment. That is nice to read that You have been learning glass painting too. Here some people are very active and some not, sob. We have courses in nearly everything things that one can imagine and I am living at countryside.

      I wish a very happy rest of Sunday to You and Yours.

  10. Nice to meet you sir. I like the collection of images on your photography blog! You have a sharp eye, as you must if you love to drive cars and fly planes so often. Your birthday gift looks like a dream come true :^)

  11. That’s such a great idea to beat the long and dull winter blue in Finland!
    I have to say those paintings are so good!
    The top 4 pictures are very blue.
    I think it’s very Finnish, like your flag.

    >To me to whom English is not native language, I have always problem to understand immediately the word “Indian”.

    Oh, to the people of Britain, the word “Indian” is always associated with the subcontinent of India.
    India was once an important colony of Britain.
    But to American, “Indian” is their native Indian.

    That’s also another word, that means something different in Britain and America.
    The word, “Asian” in Britain normally refers to South Asia, including India, Bangladesh, Pakistan.
    “Asian” in America normally refers to the Far East.

    • Hello London Caller.

      Thank You commenting. I also thank You for Your clarifying explanation concerning the word Indian. We are using Masajo Indian sugar which comes from Bolivia, South America. It has been made according the long tradition of Chancay Indians. Now You may better understand my “confusion” when seeing the word Indian.

      Well, there is in addition one thing from my point of view which confuses me when we are talking from the word Indian. In the 70ties I travelled very much in South America and especially in Peru and met many Indians there. That meant that I my daughter got her first name Inca that is according to Inca Indians. I also bought very much Indian music from Peru and that means flute music. I guess that You have heard the beautiful song “El Cóndor Pasa” by Simon & Garfunkel from 1970 as one example. So, from my point of view there are Indians in South and Central America, that is the fact, because there have been many Indian tribes like (Olmecs, Toltecs, Aztecs, Mayas, Incas, Zapotecs etc.).

      I am also great fan of literature telling Wild West. My favorite writer is Zane Grey. In many of his books there are stories about cowboys and Indians. In his books I learned very much about Indians and their life.

      Anyway Your explanation is very good and I enjoy that that You explained it to me, but if we are thinking who is seeing the word Indian and where, then I see it in my way due to my travel in South and Central America.🙂

      BTW, in Finnish we have different word for those who live in India and for those who are Native Indians in the States and in South and Central America. So in Finnish, we do not have any problem with this.

  12. this exhibit is wonderful and the art pieces are exquisite! I wish there was a way to see how they were made, though.🙂

    • Hello Bursky.

      Thank You so much for Your comment. I guess that the process is long. Those people who visit on courses once a week start them in September and end in April.

  15. C´est magnifique ! Je suis émerveillée par le talent et la créativité de tous ces artistes de la saison froide en Finlande.J´aime beaucoup le vitrail 13, joli vase rouge avec des pendentifs comme des baies. Le vitrail 19, la dame au chapeau noir, très Art Nouveau, un peu comme une peinture de van Dongen. Merci pour toutes ces belles images d´un art que j´aime beaucoup.

    • Bonjour Isa.

      Tes paroles me réchauffent le coeur, merci beaucoup. J’adore ce numéro 19 aussi, quand je l’ai vu, je le saivais c’était une mademoiselle de la “Ville Lumière” – Paris ce que j’ai vu en cela.

  16. I really liked all of the glass paintings but the little square blue one with the star in it really captured my attention.
