Ceramics, metal.

Selected Finalist at the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2022.

Referencing traditional Finnish ryijy tapestries, Huotari has updated the artform by using ceramics in the place of woollen yarn. Hand forming each tiny fragment of clay, they are glazed and fired to create thousands of ceramic pieces which are then handsewn onto a metal base. The overlapping pieces in a variety of sizes and shapes resemble the scales of a fish, creating a delicate and tactile work with vibrant colour combinations that complement its form and texture beautifully.
