LEM - CERAMICS (2009)
LEM is a group formed in a petrol station in Finland in 2008 while its members were enjoying a pit stop on a high way on their way to Helsinki. Members: Lotta Veromaa, Saara Kaatra and Laura Itkonen
LEM has made one project so far. ‘Animal Series’ is the first project by LEM and it is sponsored by Iittala Group. ‘Animal Series’ tells stories through animals in everyday ceramic tableware, creating new life and meaning for everyday common objects. The vessels are made using old Iittala moulds that are out of production: bowls, cups and plates that have simplistic shapes, familiar to Iittala Groups tableware. The easily approachable animal figures create their own private miniature worlds into each vessel that can be endearing, terrifying, humoristic or twisted depending on the viewer.
