Outi Piiroinen – visual artist/printmaker
I am visual artist and printmaker from a small North Karelian village. My home is surrounded by peaceful nature that is endless inspiration for my art. In recent years I have covered Finnishness and peoples relationships with nature, time and again. Heavy and grave thoughts need counterbalance from lighter themes and then I draw and paint real Finnish domestic animal from my neighbourhood and secretly hoping they would be mine.
From KOTINEN glass container shop you can find products made by ten different crafting companies. The entrepreneurs are long-term professionals and the quality of their products is really high. But not just the quality combines these items. They all have strong root in Finnishness.
