Description

“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.”

About the designer


Hanna Heino

In my art I am emphasizing on sculptured ceramics to discover organic forms, hazy shades and fascinating structures. I wish that my pieces create harmonious beauty and good moods around them, a place and a moment where you can stop and breath. I also want to believe that even if every piece is a single, they form a larger entity. I’m using traditional, hand building techniques and a different kind of stoneware clay, which is a hard and durable material. I want that you can feel the real material and make you fancy to touch the surface. I love the feeling that I can hold on to my own freedom to create individual pieces and I want to highlight that each of these sculptured pieces are a unique piece of art. This is my way to create silent beauty to this world. www.hannaheino.com

Curated by

The body of work in this collection consists of pieces by Greek designers of the mainland and the diaspora, or international professionals who live and work in Greece. As a common theme we tackle the elusive notion of “Greekness” and how this transpires through the work of seemingly diverse and distinct individuals. In our attempt to define “Greekness”, we aim to raise questions about how this plays out in the work presented. How do Greek designers view their identity? Is it through their effort to decipher their heavy heritage? Is form important in order to achieve a predisposed classic elegance, or is a philosophical disposition towards shape more poignant? Could it be simply a resourcefulness and DIY ethic to make up for the absence of design infrastructure? How do Greek designers based abroad deal with their background? Could it be that they simply ignore it in order to finally free themselves? Is there a certain amount of innovation necessary in order to channel it into the new environment? Finally, how do foreign designers see their work influenced by their Greek surroundings? Is it the reference through the use of noble materials such as marble or the abundance of natural light that makes their work unquestionably Greek? Or could it be something else they were seeking when they decided to move here, something abstract like humour or drama? Could their arrival finally mean a departure from Greek heritage’s self-reference? The pieces that we present might seem ill-matched, but they share an important core element. They are confident in their narrative of a personal story of identity, that is either at peace or against the Greek archetype. Through this communication, they all describe a culturally mature and vibrant scene that is finally extroverted and coming of age.
