Via Paisiello 6
Nordic Mood collection presents the results of a year-long project, which focuses on the process of joining ceramics and glass in the glassblowing process. Combining these incompatible materials required an extensive material research for developing unique ceramic clays from raw materials, with the thermal shock resistance and durability required for this process. Resulting ceramics display significant versatility in production and can be shaped through numerous ceramics making methods, such as slip-casting, throwing or pressing, and being able to use it directly in the glassblowing process opened up many creative possibilities. The process also required a thorough experimentation in glass studio for developing efficient and reliable glassblowing methods, which are specialized for exploring and benefiting from the interaction between these materials.
The collection is inspired by the atmosphere, impression and the colours of sky in Finland. Objects in the collection are designed to explore the aesthetic and functional possibilities of these materials in terms of texture, form, colour and finishes in variety of compositions.
