Not from Finland but love the Finnish company iittala, especially Kaj Franck's Teema plates, the square ones for veggies are wonderful. I look at my colorful terracotta Teema plate in February and figure making them is how Finland gets through the long winters... or anyway it's how I get through ours here. I crave a celadon one as a nice color for summer but I have to save up the dough for it!
Well i guess i've gone far enough off topic with that blast from the ktichen, eh?
Anyway I'm sure you're not the only one from Finland on these forums!
