► Sculptor Tommi Toija (born 1974) sculpts human figures from everyday materials – clay, plywood and various found items. His “thick-headed” figures are timid, curious, sad, funny and sometimes even frightening. Each one tells its own story, and the viewer cannot avoid being influenced by them. The book was published in association with Galerie Forsblom and it features Toija's sculptures from the years 2005–2011.
