Anu Penttinen has mastered the art of glass. She is considered a glass artist and has her own glass studio in NuutajÃ¤rvi Glass Village. She is a graduate of the University of Art and Design Helsinki, and her art reflects her fascination with bold colors and clear lines â a fascination inspired by the urban environment and their movements from place to place.
Penttinens glass works have been shown in various exhibitions, both in Finland and abroad. Vitriini (2010), which she designed for Iittala, has been awarded both the prestigious iF Golden design award in 2012 and a Fennia Prize commendation in 2012.
