Kittilä by tania tuominen

My current range is called ‘Women of influence’.

A range of contemporary hand built ceramics in Southern Ice porcelain with a fresh look at the art of crochet.

Most of the crochet doilies used to imprint the porcelain were made by my Finnish grandmothers over 30-50 years ago.

I have named the pieces after the women in my family who have most influenced my creative life. They all have interesting Finnish names such as Maija Liisa and Iida Vappu. A short narrative of four of these women is included with each tea light or vase so the customer can appreciate and share in the sentimentality of the work.

To add to this range I have developed a range of little dishes, brooches, ornaments and small lamps.

Also as a part of the ‘Women in Influence’ theme I have accepted customer commissions using their family doilies and some of these unique pots will be sold as limited editions.
