Stikla Galerija: Gorgeous Glass


By Editor. 11.02.2010

Glass artist Barbala Gulbe has been running the only glass gallery in Riga for about four years now.


Stikla Galerija (Glass Gallery) at 6 Laipu iela, features not only temporary exhibitions by local and foreign glass artists, with stunning examples of the latest contemporary creations in the world of glass art, but also small hand-made souvenirs. For those who don’t have art work in their budget, there are unique examples of glass jewelry on offer – glossy glass earrings in all shapes and sizes, and matching necklaces as well. The oven in the corner is always ready for use, and if you’re lucky you may just stop by on a day when Gulbe or one of her colleagues are working on their latest creation. The friendly artists in this gallery will be more than happy to talk with you about their work, explain their technique, or simply have a friendly chat.
