Arabia Memories

Saturday, 31 August 2013

The most famous Finnish porcelain factory, Arabia, is turning 140 years old this year. To celebrate, they are offering 12 plates, each inspired by a decor from Arabia's history and named after women who either have worked or still work at Arabia.

I really liked the box they came in and my personal favourites are the Ulla and Heli. See the full collection here.

Decor by Johanna Kunelius, shape by Heikki Orvola.

But for me the more exciting news (from 2011, sometimes news reaches me slowly) is that during renovations a year ago some old moulds were found behind a wall and now these beauties are being released again using the same moulds. The line includes gorgeous items by such artists as Kurt Ekholm, Michael Schilkin, and Kaj Franck. Here's some photos and information.

Arabia is definitely one of my favourite ceramic companies out there, their archive's full of beautiful objects. I can never keep my hands off of Arabia and always pick it up.
