The Best Days of My Life 2005 (detail).
I first saw the work of Maria Nuutinen in an obscure (in the UK!) and inspiring design publication which I found at Borders in London last year called Metalsmith, so I was very excited to see her work at Collect with Galleria Norsu, a gallery from Helsinki dedicated to Nordic contemporary craft. Nuutinen is part of Amazing Animal with 2 other artists, Mervi Kurvinen and Kati Nulpponen.
