Handcrafted

All Ateljee Ahonen ceramics are made in small batches using high-quality stoneware clays. Jenni Ahonen designes and handcrafts all the ceramic works by herself.

Process

Ahonen loves experimenting with clay and by doing so she gets inspired by the process. She often mixes pigments or oxcides, and different clay bodies together to achieve interesting colours and textures in her work. For her it’s important to leave room for Intuitition and play. Ahonen's work process is not rushed due to forming the clay just with hands. At the moment she enjoys creating the work with coiling and pinching.
