"I don't make works, I make moments that have been lived, traces left by life. The shapes and colours reflect a presence, of time, place and man, at this instant, between past and future." - Kati Tuominen-Niittylä

Exhibition ,

solo exhibition by the Finnish ceramic artist Kati Tuominen-Niittylä. Her vessels combine multiple techniques alternating between wheel-throwing, casting, and hand-building evoking archetypal silhouettes reminiscent of functional vessels such as buckets and basketry. Tuominen-Niittylä reimagines the container, infusing it with earthy tones and elegant simplicity. The objects appear almost as ancient artefacts or geological with an archaic timelessness. The simple forms don't follow strict geometric principles, instead, they have a natural flow and inherent organicity. “I like the quiet movement.”

The linear simplicity of her forms is contrasted with an intensely textured surface. Their rough surfaces are meticulously carved, a meditative journey that speaks of Nordic landscapes and ancient forests.
