  Hi, I am an artist from Finland, and I like to make stuff! I also collect nice little things. Projects/sofubi/random stuff.

I spent this weekend in Petäjävesi, which is a small town located in central Finland. As well as being my former hometown and a good place to practise flying a drone, one of the few UNESCO World Heritage sights of Finland, the Petäjävesi Old Church, is also located there. It’s a lovely old wooden church that was originally constructed around year 1764 and expanded later in 1821. It’s an interesting mixture of both crude yet skillful woodwork, and detailed but naive handmade decorations, which I personally quite like. Inside the church there are also some cute but a little bit weird wooden figurines and carvings. #petajavesi #petajavesioldchurch #unesco #woodenchurch #woodenarchitecture #architecture #finland

In Scotland they might have the Nessie, but even here in rural Finland I was able to spot a Byron! 🐳

It's been a rainy day so the colours are quite muted, but next time I promise to post a bit brighter stuff. Maybe something pink, hehe! 🦄 #byron #koraters #shokonakazawa #sofubi #finland #toycollecting #バイロン #ナカザワショーコ #フィンランド #ソフビ #怪獣 #怪獣ソフビ

Fresh after sauna and ready to go for a dip in the lake. The summer sceneries in the Finnish countryside are quite nice. Please come and visit one day if you haven't already. #sauna #finland #visitfinland #saunaman #サウナ #フィンランド #toycollecting

Traditionally a Finnish sauna comes with an inflatable penguin inhabitant to keep you company during your otherwise lonesome bathing sessions. The long tradition of high-temperature penguin housing has its roots in the year 1378 when Jarl Ulfberth the Third from Kingdom of Sweden arrived to the capital of Finland and brought a fine specimen of the already extinct line of Ikean BLÅSLIGT penguins as a present from the King. Back then penguins were worshipped as sacred animals and the practise was closely linked with an unnaturally intense affection with polyvinylchloride. The inflatable penguins are believed to protect the house from bad spirits and the size of a penguin correlates directly with its anti-demon effectiveness and protective capabilities. This particular specimen is from the late 20th century, as can be seen from its sleek yet playfully simple visual style and bold colours. It's a fine example of our precious cultural heritage that's still alive and well after hundreds of years of its birth.

Deadlines approaching soon! But not so soon that I would actually realize it and start doing things fast. But soon enough for me to understand that shit is definitely going to start hitting the fan in a few days. Maybe I should just intentionally start panicking already and get it over with. 💩💥#deadline #deadlinepanic #graphicdesign #designerlife #rampagetoys #sofubi #toycollecting #ランペイジトイズ #ソフビ

Yay! We welcomed this little botanical fellow at our home today! 🌵Standing impressive 40cm tall and costing only 4€ (!!!!!) at a nearby flea market/recycling center, I think the deal was pretty sweet. #gogglyeyes #googlyeyes #cactus #botanical #creature #homedecor #plants #植物 #カクタス

I haven't posted anything for a while, so I thought this lovely summer scene would be a fitting way to start uploading some shit again! #suomenlinna #visitfinland #poo #helsinki #ヘルシンキ #フィンランド #ornithology #うんこ #kakka #slomo

Lately I've been quite inspired by the awesome needle felted works by @sheishine @lizzieneedles and @mabgraves and wanted to properly try my hands on the material. For the past few days I've slowly experimented with making one of the characters (or something similar) that I've made previously in polymer clay and ceramics. I still have to figure out what to do with a few things such as the hands, but it's progressing anyway! #crafts #handmade #needlefelting #needlefelt #cutecreature #cuteanimals #characterdesign #toydesign

Finally a productive day! Among other things I modified an ottoman I have made previously. A new fabric makes it basically brand new! I think it turned out quite okay despite the fact I really don't know much about sewing. Also, sneaking into the picture, a carpet recently made by @nununuu ! #handmadefurniture #diy #crafts #scandinaviandesign #nordicdesign #ottoman #finnishdesign #marimekko #北欧デザイン #マリメッコ

So nostalgic! 😍 I remember playing with these exactly same foam gliders when I was a kid, and they were so fun! Today I found a place where they are still for sale, in the exact same packages as the ones I used to play with 20 years ago. I thought they didn't exist anymore! #riimikko #nostalgictoys #toycollecting #simpletoys #glider #powerprop #toyplane

The most intellectually fascinating gachapon toy idea I've come by so far. Needless to say, I had to buy one. Haha just kidding, I'm not the kind of person who would buy one of these. I bought three. #gacha #gachapon #toycollecting #ガチャポン #cutetoys #cuteanimals #ornithology #屁の鳥 #松本人志
