Jenni Rope, Matti Pikkujämsä

Matti Pikkujämsä & Jenni Rope

Jenni and Matti became friends back in 1999 during their studies at the Helsinki University of Art and Design. In the Summer of 2018, together, they designed the Täkki pattern for their first Blue Things exhibition. The inspiration for their design comes from common interests in exploring the interface between crafts, art and new material experiments. Initially they worked separately on a plethora of patterns, after which Matti chose Jenni's most interesting and eye-catching designs and Jenni chose her favourite patterns from Matti's work. What came out were originals from Jenni: squares of abstract patterns made with the linocut technique while Matti had painted his patterns, inspired by plants, with Japanese markers on porous paper.
