ART & DESIGN
Nathalie Lautenbacher is a Franco-Finnish ceramist, whose extraordinary products and art pieces have been sold at Lokal since its founding year. She has contributed to Lokal Kollektion as well as several exhibitions and fairs. We visited her studio to take a closer look at her refined processes.
We have awarded a Finnish artisan with our first Recognition Gift, a new annual award honouring artisan skills. We also shared two special honourable mentions to silversmith Elle Valkeanpää and container maker Bo-Åke Ljungars.
We spent a sunny winter Sunday in Hanni’s cabin just outside Helsinki, enjoying both sensory and visual treats which we could like to share with you.
Outi Martikainen is a textile artist known for her striking large-scale woven images, as well as her distinct knowledge and use of her material.
