Three vessels part of 100 MIGRATORY was exhibitied at the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce New York City in November 2019. It was vessel no 68/100M, 74/100M and 99/100M as well as “Clear as Crystal V” . Monica L Edmondson was selected as one of the businesses to exhibit at the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce New York City in November 2019. The show was initiated by Arctic Design of Sweden – a regional project to introduce high-quality design from the north of Sweden for an international market.
It is a story behind each vessel of glass, sculpture in stone, urban glass façade or wallpaper pattern. It can be a story to remind us of our own – as well as natures’ – fragility and strength, a story which explores questions of identity and migration or a story to connect traditional Sami crafts or local history with art in an urban context. I live in Tärnaby, north-west Sweden where I have my glass studio and workshop.
I was also invited to present my art and the Sami culture at Urban Glass, Brooklyn
