“Handcrafted design. Something unusual, valuable and worth caring for”

She specializes in glass and ceramics, but her work is also characterized by explorations with wood, metal, leather and textiles, as well as combining different materials. The delicate Hely jewel lamp is a perfect example of her know-how of various materials and her creative flair. Katriina’s harmonic work mainly consists of lights, interior accessories and tableware.
