NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

Together, the glass designers Pavlenkova, Oppi and Jõgis form the artist group “We Fit Together”. Their collaboration began in 2014 in the Department of Glass Art of the Estonian Academy of Arts where they were making a set of a pitcher and drinking glasses to participate in the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair. Other dishes based on unique designs are also the result of collaboration: drinking glasses, pitchers, decanters, vases, goblets and bowls. The aim is to play with different principles of fitting or interconnecting. The process is playfully based on the functionality of the form and the emotional qualities of the end result. The joyful approach is emphasised by the bright selection of colours.

All the dishes have been hand blown and processed in Estonia which makes every object unique. In addition to the dishes, the exhibition contains videos explaining the production process and the wood and plaster moulds used for glass blowing.

Works by the We Fit Together group have been previously exhibited in the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair, the St Petersburg Museum of Glass Art, Hop Gallery and Okapi Gallery in Tallinn and Pärnu City Gallery.
