Taking inspiration from Scandinavia’s famous nature and light, the LOOPALU concept is focused around minimalism and stillness in design. Each and every ceramic piece is built by hand and finished at Sulev Loopalu’s pottery studio located on the idyllic west-coast Estonian island of Hiiumaa. Building on 20 years of experience with ceramics, Sulev has developed unique methods and an eye-catching individual style inspired by Hiiumaa’s sights and nature. All photography is courtesy of his daughter, Maret Loopalu, who currently lives in London, acting as the Creative Director for a well-known design platform. Growing up in Hiiumaa, Maret has been photographing the island since age 12, learning to accentuate the beautifully distinctive light of the region in her photography.
