Devil Dog, 2022
Glazed stoneware, clay, glaze, ceramics The piece was made as part of a bachelor degree show at Academy of Fine Arts Helsinki, that was held in August-September 2022. Devil Dog was part of a ceramic sculpture installation. In this work, I wanted to challenge myself technically and make a large ceramic sculpture, which I have not done before. The work deals with the relationship between human and nature and the dark sides of the human mind. The work contains references to the fantasy world, hidden symbolism and metaphors that the viewer can interpret from their own perspective. In my work, I pondered the differences between evil and goodness and wanted to make a work that reflects both.
