Sakari Kannosto is a multi-media artist working in Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa, Finland with a primary focus on ceramics sculptures and large-scale installations. He creates fantastical figurative works inspired by Finnish folklore and fairytales, that explore the relationship between humankind and nature. While at first glance Kannosto’s brightly glazed creatures may seem whimsical and lighthearted, they are, in fact, based on an ancient Finnish myth that animals act as intermediators able to move between worlds and modulate form. Driven by contemporary environmental issues and their potentially disastrous outcomes, Kannosto reimagines these animals’ ability to adapt to the environment damaged by the industrial developed world.
