Introducing Astialiisa Online's collection from Finnish designer Birger Kaipiainen (1915-1988). Kaipiainen made his 50+ year career at the Arabia Porcelain Factory. Nicknamed the “king of decorators”, he is one of the most successful finnish ceramic artists both for ceramic art and everyday tableware. His designs are full of fantasy, romance, playfulness and colour. Best known for the Paratiisi and Sunnuntai series, which were both brought back into production due to the popular demand.
