This years competition was held in Stoke-On-Trent UK. The theme was Diversity and I presented my street art projects. It was very intensive but also fun day. I was amazed from all the skillful ceramists and artists and was happy to hear about their work. The six winners: Sophie Southgate, Julia Schuster,Weronika Lucińska, Ahryun Lee and Maria Gasparian -congratulations and enjoy your year as ceramics ambassadors!
Warmly recommended for all recent graduates to apply next year.

Product development continues -geometric shapes

 Testing different stonewares and developing glazes for the geometric plates sets.

Working on street art has influenced my take on clay profoundly. Specially the esthetics of tags (the fast signatures of graffiti artists) have made big difference. With this series I´m transforming the spirit of tags to 3D ceramic lines with dripping and layered glazes. Part of these wallpieces  will be exhibited in December at Paperihuone Galleria, Hämeenlinna.

Hauras Metsä/ Fragile Forest

This is the first take on placing my Hauras/Fragile tiles on an environmental art context at Sierijärvi, Rovaniemi.  With the word hauras/fragile I´m refering of course to the material itself but also to the history of the human race and living in the the middle of climate change. It´s fascinating how the surroundings is always transforming the work and how to read it.
