ABOUT

I´m Henriikka Leppänen, ceramics designer and maker from Norh Karelia, Finland.

"Clay inspires me and I get ideas by observing and feeling its qualities. Clay as a material is filled with energy that has travelled through ice ages and gains its final form in the heat of the kiln.

My relationship with nature is strong; nature helps me relax and distances me from everyday life whilst it also gives me new ideas and inspirations. I get inspired by the creatures and bugs in the nature, rough surfaces and natural materials.

It’s important for me that a product looks and feels good, is practical whilst also being multi-functional. I wish to create something new where modern and traditional can elegantly meet."
