HEINI RIITAHUHTA (Finnish, b. 1975)

Passion Flora, 2017

Ceramic

45.75" diameter

Heini Riitahuhta (Finnish, b. 1975) is an artist and designer living and working in Helsinki, Finland where she is a member of the Arabia Art Department Society. Taking inspiration from the natural world as well as from traditional Finnish fold crafts such as embroidery and cross-stitch, Riitahuhta makes detailed ceramic mosaic work. When focused on individually, each of the hexagonal tiles in her works contains its own internal abstract cosmos, while from a distance each plays a small role in the intricate overall composition. Her works are a personal testament to childhood memories spent in her grandmother’s garden surrounded by the scent of the earth and the perfume of flowers.
