Fragments of Everyday Life/ Commission

Commission, Public work, Arabianranta, Helsinki
Relief, collected porcelainware mosaic
I collected the material for the mosaic from Vanhankaupunginlahti near Arabianranta. The land used to serve as a dumping ground for e.g. discarded Arabia products. Arabia is one of the best known and most highly regarded Finnish brands known for its tableware for over 140 years. The oldest pieces originate from the 1920s.
