Birger Kaipiainen Invenit Arabia 1987.

”VIOLA

A piece of the graceful ”Orvokkimeri”, Sea of pansies, has been immortalized in honour of professor Birger Kaipiainen, an artist who gave ceramic art a style of his own. Mysterious, fabulous stories. Strong colours, rich exuberance full of imagery.

“Viola” the platter, is a memento of one of the most renowned works of the artist. The monumental “Orvokkimeri” made in 1967 for the Montreal World Fair. In Montreal people queued up in order to see the famou, enchanting work of art.

The hand decorated “Viola” platter is also a unique, singular work of art and a collector’s item. An owner of the platters, the platters available in three sizes, can have a sea of pansies of her own, similar to the original one.

The artist worked for Arabia, a factory he lovedand respected, for nearly 50 years.

Viola platter sizes 145 x 130 mm, 276 mm x 253 and 550 mm x 490 x 70 mm. The original Orvokkimeri 9 x 4,5 m. The work is in the assembly room of the city executive board of Tampere.

Invenit (Latin) = modelled on something
