New Design by Pekka Antikainen
Pekka Antikainen has created new gorgeous designs again! The Medieval Horseman series includes stoneware bowls, plates and keepsake boxes.
Following his Lapland theme comes the Shaman Sun series with astonishing vibrant colors!
The third new stoneware design is based on Finnish bird motif from 800 A.D. ~ Hattula Bird. This Scandinavian jewelry design is found in ancient burial places in Hattula, southern Finland. The northern peoples had a special relationship with waterfowl, which symbolized fertility. For the population of the north, the return of birds in the spring signified summer, the start of a new year. When the waterfowl returned, people knew that nature was emerging from its winter sleep. Waterfowl featured the magic of fertility.
