Lem is a ceramics collective out of Finland, formed at a gas station on the way to Helsinki. I think that is the best way to put a group together. I heard that Bachman-Turner Overdrive came together the same way.
This series is called the Animal Series and tells stories in everyday ceramic tableware through animals, creating new life and meaning for everyday common tableware. It reminds me of the cereal bowls, my next door neighbors the Cooneys had when I was a kid. There were small figurines glazed to the bottom of the bowl that you discovered as you ate.
