I'm Rita, potter from the country of thousands of lakes, Finland. I have my own little studio in the middle of the forest, where I have the most amazing opportunity to find inspiration from nature. Nature's influence can be seen in the tableware's rustic look, forms, colors and patterns. The surrounding nature inspires to create something new, reflecting the natural world.

All my pottery is fired in 1240 degrees celsius, which assures every piece is dishwasher and microwave safe.

I hope you find something from my shop that brings you as much joy as making it does for me!

About

The story of Puusta ja maasta

Hi! I'm Rita, the potter behind Puusta ja maasta.

My own little studio is located in the middle of the forest, in country of thousands of lakes, Finland. In my workspace I have the most amazing opportunity to find inspiration from nature. Nature's influence can be seen in the tableware's rustic look, forms, colors and patterns. The surrounding nature inspires to create something new, reflecting the natural world.

All products are durable stoneware, and have been fired in 1240 degrees in a pottery kiln. The pottery’s been thrown on a pottery wheel in small series, and the decorations have been added afterwards by hand. This makes every piece unique. All my functional pottery is microwave safe and can be washed in the dishwasher. I put great pride in the products I make, and hope you can find something aesthetically pleasing to use, something you can cherish for a long time!

I got inspired to make pottery while hitchhiking around Turkey. In Cappadocia I met several local potters making amazing ceramic pieces, everything from wine carafes to small stud earrings. I dreamt of making handcrafts but I could only carry materials and tools I could fit inside my backpack. Later on, I decided to stop my travelling-lifestyle in order to fulfill my dream of buying a house and a studio and becoming a fulltime potter, and so far I haven't regretted that decision for a single second!
