The Popcorn Artist creates this years visual look

This year, the artist Veera Kulju’s ceramic works of art will feature in the overall look of the fair. The result is spectacular, but at the same time delicate, featuring a central theme of four-leaved clover symbolizing happiness. Kulju created this visual look in cooperation with the graphic designer Ilkka Kärkkäinen and the photographer Marko Rantanen. Aerial photography was used to capture digital and analogue images in a large film size.

Unique products and well-being produced by craft

One of a kind, high quality and handmade products are available for anyone looking for a memorable gift or a unique gem for themselves.
– Good mood comes from doing and experiencing things at the Finnish Craft and Design Fair. Doing crafts have been proven to have health effects. Aesthetic experiences and the encounter with the craftsman also make you feel good. The origin of a craft product can be traced directly to the craftsmen themselves and ensure that the product is ecologically and sustainably produced, says project manager Jasmin Saadetdin-Rikkinen
