Nordic Mood collection is the result of an experimental design project and an extensive material research, which focuses on aesthetic and functional possibilities of bringing together ceramics and glass during the glassblowing process. The project involves with the development of new specialised ceramic clays from raw materials, with the thermal shock resistance and durability required for glassblowing and experimentation with glassblowing methods and techniques for exploring the relationship between two materials.
Using ceramics directly in the glassblowing process opened up many possibilities in the creative process. This project utilizes the outcomes of the extensive research I have undertaken while developing my master's thesis project in terms of material research and technical knowledge to display various ways of joining two materials together while exploring the aesthetic and functional potential of this combination in terms of texture, form, colour and finishes.
The collection, which is inspired by the atmosphere, impression and the colours of sky in Finland, debuted at Ventura Future event during Milan Design Week 2018
