In the artworks titled Kudelma, the textile structure has transformed into a three- dimensional surface rhythmically punctuated by small ceramic pieces. The surface, composed of ceramic elements, provides space for glazes, turning the sculptures into painterly studies of color. In the kiln, heated to over a thousand degrees, the glaze melts and becomes liquid. The effects created during firing are an essential part of the works. The crystals formed in the kiln, along with the blending flows, transport us to a delightful world of intricate details, reminiscent of the color palette found in the natural realm of flora, fauna, and minerals.

I developed the method during the project for Suomen Käsityön Ystävät in 2019. Suomen Käsityön Ystävät invited me to participate in their 140th-anniversary exhibition, which opened at the Design Museum in January 2019. The exhibition, titled In Good Hands, offered various responses to the question of how contemporary designers perceive the history of handicrafts and what kind of inspiration can be drawn from museum collections. As an invited artist to the exhibition, I had the opportunity to explore the extensive archive of Suomen Käsityön Ystävät, founded in 1879. In dialogue with these archival materials I created my works. The archive, part of the Design Museum's collection, includes around 6,500 sample swatches, watercolor sketches, and woven pieces.
