Get to know Mikaela
My name is Mikaela Puranen and I’m a potter and marine biologist from Stockholm.
I’m currently working in a studio in the old porcelain factory in Gustavsberg where I mostly make functional pottery, such as mugs, bowls, vases, plates, etc.
I’m really fascinated by the relationship we have with ceramics, and how we interact with ceramic tableware. I’m also excited by the endless possibilities with clay.
It will probably take a lifetime to explore all the techniques and materials I’m interested in, just in the field of ceramics.
I love trying new techniques and styles, which is why a lot of my ceramics are one of a kinds, although I do have some regulars like my feminist mugs.
I strive to make sustainable choices in material choices and wherever I can in my practice.♻️🌺
