Eili Soon is one of the few glass blowing masters in Estonia that has over 15 years of experience in the field of glass. She is fascinated by traditional glass techniques and tries to blend in new techniques through forms and colour variations.
She masters many techniques, but graal is among her favourites. Among other key techniques would be engraving, hot sculpturing, cane work and gluing.
“I mould a piece without touching it with my hands, but through focus, attention, and blowing. It’s a thrilling experience, and when mastering this craft, it can be highly rewarding when you receive the admired result.”
