In the Maldives’ first hot glass studio at Soneva Fushi, we create beauty from what others consider waste. From bespoke glassware for our villas and restaurants to striking works of art, all of the exquisite pieces are recycled from used glass bottles from Soneva Fushi and our other nearby resorts.
Selected works from acclaimed artists, including Lino Tagliapietra, Tobias Mohl and Martin Janecky, among others, are also available to purchase at the So Glassycle studio.
Soneva Art & Glass is delighted to welcome returning glass artist in residence, Trine Drivsholm, to continue her latest endeavour in glass, the Lapsis series.
Trine often uses recognisable forms as a starting point for her glass sculptures, but it is the aesthetic properties of the vessel that interest her most as opposed to its functional use. She creates balanced shapes with definitive proportions and combines colours and surfaces. From matte and silky finishes to delicate tones that emphasise soft, wavy organic lines.
Trine’s Lapis series has been assembled to imitate cairns (a man-made stack of stones) with textures that have been weathered by wind, dust and time, and has been developed during her residency at the Soneva Art & Glass studio. This delicate harmony of tone and texture and its seamless connection with nature resonate with Soneva’s SLOW LIFE philosophy, which is rooted in the desire to deepen and conserve our connection with the natural world.
Enjoy the truly rare experience of learning how to blow glass in Soneva Fushi’s Art & Glass Studio. Our experienced team of glass specialists work very closely with our guests to create their very own masterpiece to take home. All works created at the Art & Glass Studio are made using recycled glass bottles from Soneva Fushi and other nearby resorts. A personalized tour of the Soneva Art Gallery and the Soneva Glass Boutique is available upon request.
