After lunch we began visiting the artists in their studios. First up was Karin Widnäs, a well-known Finnish ceramicist. Widnas built this house and studio over 10 years from local timber, and instances of her work are incorporated throughout; this incredible wall of red clay tiles are her own, for example. (We also were green with envy at her outdoor sauna, which is basically de rigueur in Finland!)
