Fragments of Everyday Life/ Commission

Public work in Arabia Bay, Helsinki 2005.
Relief, collected porcelainware mosaic.

I collected the mosaic material from the Vanhankaupunginlahti near Arabia Bay. The fields used to serve as a dumping ground for example, for discarded “Arabia” products. Arabia is one of Finland’s best known and most highly regarded brands known for it´s tablewares for over 140 years. The oldest pieces are from 1920s.
