Lintukoto has its roots in the love of craftmanship. It was established in Lapua in 1976, when pot throwing started in the kitchen, before being transferred to the boiler room. Cattle farming made way for arts and crafts in 1990 when the ceramics operations were given larger production and workshop premises in the former cattle barn. At that time, slip casting was a new technique that enabled high-quality production and the manufacture of clay that was suited to making crockery for modern use. Soon after this, Lintukoto’s best-known interior design items, such as figurines, birds and the typically Ostrobothnian pietist figures, were developed.
Our range – Lintukoto manufactures both functional and decorative ceramics: figurines, pietist and animal figures, crockery, one-off items and garden statues.
