Pentik Dogs

Design: Anu Pentik

Straight from the hands and the imagination of our very own artist Anu Pentik comes a pack of very special ceramic dogs. Each Pentik Dog is handmade and unique with its own personality. Manufactured in the heart of Lapland at our ceramic factory in Posio, these adorable dogs are now available in Pentik stores in Finland.

The idea behind the Pentik Dogs had been brewing in Anu’s mind for a while. She knew she wanted to create a new collection of Pentik Studio ceramic animals that would bring joy into the homes and lives of people everywhere. But which one to choose?

Anu considered the countless furry, winged and antlered animals that roam in the northern nature that both Anu and Pentik call home. But ultimately, it was the close and often deep bond between dogs and their humans that inspired this series.

Two talented students from Posio high school, Mariia Vaskina and Arsenii Chuvaev, joined Anu in the ceramic factory for the dog project. As a result, a unique and beloved dog family was born. The Pentik Dog ceramic sculptures belong to the Pentik Studio collection. All ceramic pieces in the Studio collection are made in small batches and decorated by hand.

Each handmade Pentik Dog has its own unique personality and facial expressions – some even have their own accessories! We hope our Pentik Dogs find their way into loving homes where they can bring warmth, joy and lots of fun to people everywhere – just as dogs so often do. The only question now is: Does the dog look like the owner or does the owner look like the dog?
