Arabia Finland Tea Pot designed by Ulla Procope. Model GA3 white Tea Pot 1.6 litre/13/4 quart.
Ulla Procopé-Nyman (1921-1968) was one of the most significant designers of the so-called golden age of Finnish design. The beginning of her career was typical of designers at the Arabia factory. Newly graduated from the Central School of Applied Art, this budding ceramist was hired in 1948 by the factory's Design Department, where she proved her skills in developing forms. In 1951 Ulla Procopé had to stop using the potter's wheel for reasons of health, and Kaj Franck included her in his product design team. Her interest in the design of utility objects dating from the student years now had to be focused on mass production. The wicker-handle GA teapots (1955–72) and the AL marmalade container (1953 – 67) are among her best-known works.
