Kerafiikka

kerafiikka

I am Henriikka Leppänen, ceramist and designer from North Karelia. I make handcrafted ceramic at my studio in Joensuu. I want to create better options for environment and for people. My style is down-to-earth and in my work I prefer natural materials, design and responsibility. Clay as a material inspires me and I get ideas by examining it and by feeling its qualities. I want to create something new and kind of which modern meets traditional in a stylish way. I appreciate my Karelian roots and I represent combination of traditional and modern craft.
