Blåa penséer - Blue Monday


Birger Kaipiainen was the Finnish ceramist behind this beautiful tree filled with blue pansies. He died in 1988 and is one of Finland's most famous artists. In 1960's he designed the tableware set Paratiisi that my parents still use in their home.

I found this gorgeous tree at the Design Museum when I visited Helsinki in the beginning of this month and it gave me loads of inspiration for my ceramic work in the autumn!

Birger Kaipiainen är den finske keramiker och designer som gjort detta fantastiska träd fyllt av blå penséer. Kaipiainen dog 1988 och anses vara en av de främsta finska konstnärerna. På 60-talet designade han den matservis mina föräldrar använder, Paratiisi.

Trädet hittade jag på Designmuseet i Helsingfors när jag var där i början av månaden. Gissa om jag fick inspiration till höstens keramiklördagar?

What gorgeous ceramics, with the blue pansies. I admire really precise texturing and glazing, it's so difficult.

Så otroligt vackert.
Och porslinet är det inte det ni har i stugan i fjällen?

Freja sa...

Åhh, så maffigt vackert!

Anni sa...

Cari, porslinet vi hade i fjällen var av Stig Lindberg. Kaipiainen kan anses vara hans finske motsvarighet.

I have always had a soft spot for pansies, they are such a cheerful flower and any flower that is happy to bloom in Winter and summer gets my vote for a great plant! I can see why this would give you such inspiration, I can't wait to see the results on your blog!
