Monumental unique works
Finn's ceramics stand firm in simple, monumental forms, which are burned at approx. 1300 degrees. The surface plays a significant role; it is often created by slipping, which is coloured clay, filled on the object in many layers. It results in a vibrant surface, full of shades you can keep exploring.
Self-built oven for salt glazing
The ceramist works in parallel with the salt glazing technique. He built the special oven that the process requires himself: Salt is injected into the oven when it is barely 1300 degrees warm, whereby salt and clay form part of a chemical compound which produces a stable, orange-peel-like glaze.
Finn creates both unique ceramics and items for everyday use, e.g., in collaboration with restaurant Noma and Copenhagen City Hall.
