“Pigment” is an unique ceramic sculpture which is created by a Finnish ceramic artist and designer Hanna Heino.
The meaning behind the sculpture’s organic shapes and fascinating surface comes from the oceans, from minerals and corals which have been the inspiration for this work. The lively, soft-toned surface makes you fancy to touch it and feel the forms, like the rest of Hanna’s works do. Every one of her works is a unique piece of art and she wants to achieve harmonious beauty using charming structures and hazy shades.
The surface of this piece is NOT glazed. The piece is fired around 1000 celsius to achieve just the right tone of light blue. Because of the lower firing temperature, the piece is more fragile than the high-fired (1250 celsius) pieces are. The sculpture is carefully finished and signed by hand.
“This is my silent way to create beauty to this world.”
