Stabiles is made of free-blown glass and hand-worked brass. The ethereal pieces are a revival of the mobile tradition that emerged in the 1930s. The heavy glass parts and the delicate brass seek a balance with
each other, thus creating tensions within the works. Vaahtera began to work on this series in May 2017 together with glassblowers Paula Pääkkönen,
Sani Lappalainen, Pauli Vähäsarja, Henni Eliala, Otto Koivuranta and Jonas Paajanen of Nuutajärvi. The metal partsare prepared by silversmith Kirsi Kokkonen together with Milla Vaahtera. The method was based on
dialogue and intuition. With these works, Vaahtera wants to revive the Finnish heritage of glassblowing, on behalf of which the series is a statement.
