Designer behind the beauty

Amfora´s roots are deep in artist´s studio. Designer, ceramic artist Päivi Rintaniemi has created this beautifully unique collection of table ware and design ceramics. All the way since her studies in the University of Art and Design, both designing and making has been an equally important part of the process. Her interest is based in everyday life aesthetic and functionality.

Together with her husband, engineer Markku Rintaniemi, they produce everything with years of experience in Finland, Päivi´s hometown Seinäjoki. Rintaniemi has also been noticed with her unique ceramic sculptures all over the world.
