I mainly work with ceramics, glass and wood.
I have graduated with BA in Glass & Ceramics Design, and have also accomplished postgraduate studies in Design Management & Service Design.
I have participated in group exhibitions in Finland and in Nordic countries since 2014.
Important aspects in my artistic practice are colors and surface. My artistic process is guided by intuition and play – I let the clay be my guide when working.
I study everyday objects and the environment and make it visible through my art. I often address issues relating to human connection to the nature.
I am interested in the little details in my surroundings, the neglected objects and plastic packaging materials. I collect used plastic packaging, cast it and create something new from it. I am inspired by different surfaces and marks. My work compares the eternal elements of ceramics and plastics. I search the boundaries where plastic turns into an interesting surface for ceramics. I aim to make art that makes the viewer question the current way of consuming.
I am as well socially and ecologically responsible designer. I want to design products that are sustainable in every level of the products life cycle.
It is important for me to have fun when creating something new – I believe that transmits to the end user as good energy.
I am eager to learn new things, and like to experiment and apply new knowledge. I love to travel, and I find new places and the nature as a great source of inspiration for me.
I am interested in new projects and international collaboration.
