I did the first tableware order with varying degrees of success in 2002 at Laitila Youth pottery workshop. Throwing 150 shot glasses took a long time because throwing a serie wasn’t so easy. I’ve been practicing throwing from a very young age at Adult Education Centre, but the actual theoretical and practical knowledge I got at the Laitila Youth workshop as an apprentice of ceramist and painter Else Joutsi.

I make and design, mainly to order, tableware for different needs. I make food safe tableware. They can wash in dishwasher, heat in oven and microwave. There is signature ”Pie-La” in the bottom tableware and the year of manufacture. Customer gets with food safe ceramics the Declaration of Conformity, where is my contact information. My tableware follows the requirements of the regulations 1935/2004 (EY) and 165/2006 (KTM, Finland). My food safe ceramics don’t contain lead, chromium, nickel or cadmium.
