So its been a week or so since I last posted, yes I’m still here!
I was away last week in beautiful Finland. I went there last year and loved it so much I just had to go back.
This time we were mostly based in the Helsinki area where we visited the excellent Design Museum which was having a retrospective of Oiva Toikka’s work. Oiva is most famous for creating glass birds and starting the company Iittala, ceramics and glass share design aspects even if the making process is radically different.
