  Suojelija (guardian) 2019 / käsin rakennettu musta savi ja lasite   Näyttelyn nimi viittaa syvyyteen, varjoihin ja pimeyden merkitykseen. Pimeys on elintärkeä luonnonvara, jota on syytä suojella*.

Täysin luonnonvaraista, ihmisen koskematonta kolkkaa tuskin löytyy koko maapallolta. Ihminen vaikuttaa jatkuvasti luontoon, usein […]
