World Class Glass Sculptures at Museo Orlina

Pagkailangan natin na mag quick get-away at kailangang makatakas sa gulo at ingay ng Meto Manila, hindi mawawala ang Tagaytay sa listahan. 

Just 1.5 hrs away from the Metro, we can now experience the cool breeze of Tagaytay. More than the weather, the food, at sa napakaraming convents in Tagaytay for soul searching, matatagpuan din dito ang mangilan-ngilang art galleries tulad ng Museo Orlina.

It was my former boss who introduced me to the artistry of Ramon Orlina. One time, he hand me over this blueish green glass and told me to display it in his office.  I remember him saying, "JLo, ingatan mo yan, Orlina yan!" 

Fast forward 15 years later, here I am standing inside the Museo Orlina in awe while looking at the wonderful crafts of Mr. Orlina.



About Museo Orlina

Museo Orlina is the showcase of the artistry of internationally acclaimed Ramon Orlina, pioneer and foremost practitioner of glass sculpture in the country. Before Orlina, glass was largely appreciated only for its utilitarian function: as drinking vessels, window glass panes or automotive windshields. A visionary, Orlina saw beyond the humble origin of this industrial glass residue. The result is an exultant body of works that, through the decades, have dazzled the art scene and prized by numerous collectors. Triumphantly, Orlina has transformed the medium by elevating it to the dignity and respectability of art.

The Museo Orlina opens its door to the public, where they can view superb examples of Ramon Orlina’s scintillating artistry to their delight and enchantment.
