Saija Halko is a Helsinki-based ceramist and designer working in her studio on small scale production of ceramics. Her practice is based on a deep knowledge of material, hands-on methods and a slowness and silence she tries to convey in her pieces. In her work, Halko explores the importance of everyday objects in our lives and how they connect us to other people and history.

Halko holds a Bachelor’s degree in Ceramic and Glass Art, and a Master’s degree in Product and Spatial Design from Aalto University, School of Art, Design and Architecture.
