An international Finnish leaf

Today I fell in love with a designer's work. Not that this name is something new in design but browsing through the Design Forum Finland's pages, I found this treasure. I thought since it's the time of ruska, this would be a perfect add to my blog. The designer's name is Maria Jauhiainen and this item's name is Lehti, the leaf. It is in the permanent collections of London's V&A Museum and MoMA in New York City. Way to go Maria! Can you believe it's made out of metal? Maria takes her ideas from nature, vunerable pieces that she transforms into something lasting and strong. Beautiful.

What's your opinion?
