Design & Production
The animal themed sculptures are a result of Janne Henriksson's passion for nature. The design process and production take place in his workshop in Pappilanmäki, Porvoo. The sculptures are cast in concrete and most of them get a layer of patination in the workshop. In addition, nature makes its own unique patination if the sculpture is kept outside all year round.
