For your consideration, a ceramic hedgehog by the noted Finnish ceramicist Teemu Luoto. The stylized work is very much in the Scandinavian modernist tradition and displays elegant aesthetics and fine craftsmanship. The piece measures 11cm x 7cm wide and 6.5cm tall and is in excellent vintage condition. Signed on the bottom “Teemu Luoto” “89”. Luoto’s animal pieces are very rare and collectable. Teemu Luoto was born in Helsinki in 1941 and in 1957-58 attended the Arts and Crafts School of Art College (now, Art and Design) continuing his education in the Department of Pottery from 1958 to 1961.
