Pentti Akseli Sarpaneva (1925-1978) was a Finnish designer who began his design career in the early/mid-1960s, specializing in affordable jewelry and other small items. His works were originally made from enamel and recycled materials, but he later moved on to cast items of bronze, silver and gold.
