Laura Koppanen

Hello and thank you for visiting my home page, I'm happy you're here!

I'm a designer based in Tampere, and I design and handcraft ceramics in my studio at Nansotalo, a beautiful old factory building in Nokia, near Tampere. I produce tableware in small series, unique ceramic items, and ceramics for restaurant use. Additionally, I organize courses and workshops, including those for businesses.

My ceramics are designed for everyday use from breakfasts and brunches to late dinners. Each piece is handmade by me from initial shaping to final touches. I emphasize in making durable and timelessly beautiful pieces that last for years.

Participants of all ages and skill levels are welcome to my courses. I also organize specifically tailored courses for your group, even in your own premises. Feel free to inquire for more information.

You are welcome to explore my ceramics at my studio. Please contact me before you visit so that I'll know to be there.
