ABOUT

 

ANTREI HARTIKAINEN

MASTER CABINETMAKER

I HAVE EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN WORKING WITH WOOD DESIGN. I DESIGN AND MAKE PRODUCTS AND INDIVIDUAL PIECES BY COMBINING PRACTICALITY, THE MATERIAL ITSELF AND A CERTAIN ARTISTIC FLAIR; AT TIMES FOCUSING ON ONLY ONE OF THESE ASPECTS. THE DESIRE TO BRING OUT THE DIVERSE POSSIBILITIES OF WOOD IS A RECURRING THEME IN MY WORK. I USUALLY CREATE CONTRASTS USING THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE WORKED SURFACE, THE FINISH, LIGHT AND SHADOW, AND LIGHT-WEIGHT AND SOLID WOOD.
