Otso (a bear, lord of the forest in Finnish mythology) series came in two variations: decorated and undecorated. The two variations combined create interesting variety and the pattern flows nicely from one version to the next. They make a charming pair of friends, so it is such a delight to own both versions.
This is the more simplified version of the Otso series. In this undecorated variation you will find only the stripes on edges. The stripes create a watercolour-like effect, which brings variation and liveliness to an otherwise simple pattern. The hand-painting gives an authentic artisanal feel to this nordic vintage series.
The colour of the glazing shifts in tone from paler to more deep tones. This change in colours gives the design a rustic feel. Arabia Otso has a playful and mysterious forest atmosphere. Its bold decoration designed by Raija Uosikkinen has a folk art style typical of 70s Finnish decorations.
