Handmade ceramics - for the love of nature
I have always loved nature and the mysticism, tales and folklore associated with it. This can be strongly seen also in my ceramics; mainly I make different kind of figures/ statues, animals and nature spirits, like gnomes, elves and trolls. Especially Finnish folklore/ mythology and its many creatures are close to my heart. And from there, the roots and old myths of my homeland, I get my most powerful inspiration.
I also make some other decorative-items and tableware: bowls, cups, mugs, candle- and soap coasters, oil warmers, etc. decorated with different symbols, animals, leaves, spirals and other shapes and patterns of nature. I often add a place for candle and/ or incense-stick on a decorative item, so it has a useful function too. All the products are made of high-fire stoneware clay, and the glaze colours I use are warm and earthy shades.
I like details, and that every item is a little bit different from another – they all have their own special nature. I make every single thing one by one, with my own hands, so all products are entirely unique.
In addition to ceramics, I make Dreamcatchers and Power Animal Nets, and also beeswax Spell Candles.
With my ceramics I wish to bring a pinch of mysticism and atmosphere of the timeless spirit of nature all around us –
to remind people of the old times, when the world was still full of nature spirits and magick.
