Jatta Lavi makes small-scale production in her studio in Helsinki. The products are mainly mold cast and intended for use. She pays great attention to the ecology of the processes, especially inspired by the Finnish red clay as a local material.
Jatta has worked as a designer-craftsman since 1997 when she graduated from the University of Art and Design Helsinki ( ceramicist, MA) and has been a full-time entrepreneur in ceramics since 2005.
All products are handmade using small series methods: casting and pressing into a mold. The porcelain products are fired at 1240°C. The red clay products are made from domestic red clay, which comes from Kultela in Someron.
Along with the high level of design and quality, Jatta takes into account the ecological nature of the production process. The material of their products is mainly porcelain. The magical transparency and lightness of porcelain is often an inspiration in my designs. The objects are intended for use and, with the exception of the porcelain can, are machine washable.
