Minna Eväsoja

 Dr Minna Eväsoja (b. 1965, previously Minna Torniainen) has worked as a professor at The University of Helsinki and as a researcher in the Academy of Finland. Her research took her to Japan for five years, where she studied in the traditional tea ceremony school Urasenke as well as at the universities of Kōbe and Takarazuka. Her sensei has taught her to trust her own vision, all the while gently accepting the limits of her knowledge.

Here you can find a short interview with the author from our series, which will give you an even better picture of her work.
