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.
I’m browsing my new (returning) sponsor Napa’s channels and stumble over this, what it looks like, exciting project Napa & Paja.
“Napa & Paja is a jewellery designers’ studio & shop with Napa‘s artists’ bookshop. Paja features a varied selection of hand crafted jewelry by Elli Hukka, Kokoru and Bird of Passage. Napa’s bookshelf features a special selection of artists’ books by Napa, Corraini, Nieves, mmmg etc.”
What really takes my breath away is these ceramic creatures by Jenni Tuominen. Gosh, must be the best since this project. Related in a way.
More great over at Napa, the pencil necklace!
The thrilling feeling when it was a while you visited and the much candy you’re offered since last time. Claire Loder’s art and blog.
Handmade, new, sculptural tiles by Lubna Chowdhary. This and this set also. And the stirling tiles for a kitchen.

Swedish Kristine Thenman‘s work is subtle and humorous. An overarching theme in her work is nature. Nature as seen from different perspectives.
Will you pass by Stockholm in January? In that case take the chance to visit Kristine’s upcoming exhibition ”Tid och otid” (12 jan – 30 jan 2013) at Konsthantverkarna.
Now this makes me happy, truly happy. Laura Carlin and Chie Miyazaki will have a collaborative show in London in November, with “many animals”.
Please just take me there, now.
Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November, 2012.
