The Oiva plate is made of brown stoneware and it features the Elokuun Varjot pattern. The plate is dishwasher, oven, microwave and freezer safe.
Maija Louekari drew inspiration for the 2020 Elokuun Varjot (August shadows) print from her own wildish home garden. The designer is fascinated by the changing seasons of the North – the new beginnings and the abundant growth that follows, year after year. This pattern design is an ode to greenery, freedom and warm winds.
The outside of the plate is naturally rough with no glaze while the inside has a clear glaze. Please note that variations in tone and colour are naturally occurring characteristics of brown stoneware, making each product charming and unique. It's wonderful as a salad, entree or cake plate.
