Crystal ceramics

  • • Eddi uses a very old technique of crystal glaze
  • • He likes geometrical forms and floral patterns
  • • His tableware is inspired by women

Eddi Leet is a mechanical engineer by profession but became an artisan after being an apprentice to the Norwegian master ceramicist Carl Olaf Olsen. After his two-year apprentice learning how the whole ceramic studio operates, he set up his ceramic studio in 1995 and started teaching local Estonian apprentices. He travelled and worked together with Urmas Puhkan creating various clay installations in several countries and representing Estonia. With a mechanical perspective, Eddi creates fascinatingly poetical and extraordinary ceramics that inspire many around him. He has won several Baltic wheel throwing competitions and is regarded as the master of the clay squeezer. One of his hidden talents is not only creating beautiful ceramics but also building kilns for ceramicists.
