thanks to rena for sending me a link to designer, jatta lavi. based in a small studio in helsinki, lavi produces beautiful porcelain vessels that look delicate but are actually intended for everyday use and can be washed in the dishwasher. lavi specializes in smaller designs because, "i like to make small objects that one can pick up to have a closer look and feel the material". you can find more information on lavi's work right here. thanks, rena!
