You who have followed for a while knows how much I love ceramics which obvoius handmade touch.
The Starling Brood ceramics are handmade “in Brooklyn, NY and sometimes a cabin in the woods”. Artist Mihaeko began the story of Starling Brood 2010 when she worked with singer Björk to design a series of musical instruments.

In the truest sense – she is multi talented, Jenni Tuominen. Graduated as a blacksmith in 1996. Went back to school and became an artist in 2001. Studied graphic design at the University of Art and Design Helsinki. Won Marimekko’s “Design, Meet the User!” competition in 2006 and has designed patterns for them ever since. Obviously, she has the ability to make magic with clay as well.
These treasures. Just can not stop look at them. So characteristic, weird and perfect. What a trade.
Take a peep at Jenni’s home here.

Swedish Kristine Thenman‘s work is subtle and humorous. An overarching theme in her work is nature. Nature as seen from different perspectives.
