Kristina Riska


Kristina Riska was born in Helsinki, Finland, where she later trained at the University of Art and Design. She is a senior member of the Arabia Art Department Society in Helsinki and is broadly considered to be one of Scandinavia’s foremost contemporary ceramic artists. Her work starts on paper, yet the design takes shape as she works with the clay. There is powerful serenity in her work, energy that emanates from the undulating, fluid curves and organic palette of glazes. These seemingly delicate sculptures belie amazing structural integrity, achieved through Riska’s consummate skills. She has exhibited extensively in Finland and internationally, received grants and several prestigious awards, most recently the Silver Medal at the International Ceramic Contest in Mino, Japan, in 2002.
