Welcome to my ORAVA STUDIO
Each ceramic piece is uniquely handcrafted at my studio located in the Finnish countryside.
Here at our rustic old farmstead, I can live a life connected to art, earth and nature.
Our home with the ancient trees and plants that grow around the buildings, the nearby forest, the skies and endless views over the fields give me all the inspiration to create in clay.
When I'm creating something I touch the clay as little as possible with tools, using my hands.
I'm never using an electric throwing weel, so it's a slow and gentle procedure, and gives natural structure and shape.
In these moments of making, I feel like I'm going with the clay and don't work against it. Letting go of expectations, being in the flow of the process leaves the marks behind, that this natural material deserves.
The goal is always to create something that has its own calming beauty and is alive at the same time.
