ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Thora Finnsdottir

Thora Finnsdottir

Thora Finnsdottir is known for original Scandinavian design. Her works are a reflection of how she finds inspiration in everyday shapes but adds her own unique design language to them. She graduated from the Danish Design School in 2009 and works in her workshop at Kunstnerhuset in Frederiksværk. Her Icelandic background is clearly evident in her work, and Thora Finnsdottir is often inspired by the great contrasts of her homeland – the meeting between nature and civilization, old and new.

Her designs are based on existing everyday objects, whose shape and structure she plays with to create new designs. This strong connection of tradition and revival is evident in the series Christmas Tales, which is a collection of evocative, ceramic figures directly inspired by Nordic nature and crafted in Kähler’s famous handmade quality.

Each ceramic Christmas Tale by Thora Finnsdottir carries an authentic message about Christmas and reflects her experimental and exploratory approach to form and narrative, drawing on the stories and traditions of Kähler’s art and designs. In the Christmas Tales series, Thora Finnsdottir has recreated nature’s structures and shapes with an intense curiosity. She has used direct castings of mushrooms, cones and tree stumps, which she has then gives new life through ceramics.

Thora Finnsdottir’s work for Kähler has also given us the Stella series, which includes a tealight holder and a window hanging, where the movement of the candle creates beautiful and playful shaddows on the table or window sill. When candles spread their warm and cosy glow, the slender ceramic material has an almost transparent look. Both series are clear proof of Thora Finnsdottir’s ability to design Christmas decor that brings joy and a Christmas feel to the holiday season. Equally, both series are clear testaments to Kähler’s handmade design traditions that have been in existence since 1839.
