Esteri Tomura has a congenital dwarf disease and initially majored in pottery at Aalto University of Arts in Helsinki, but due to physical and physical reasons she was unable to handle clay satisfactorily.

After joining ARABIA, he will hone his skills as a pattern designer with Laija Uosikkinen, who became a lifelong friend. While Uosikkinen preferred abstract and geometric patterns, Tomra seeks the origin of his designs in Finnish flowers, which were the original scenery of his childhood. Tomra, who created masterpieces in spite of physical handicaps, has something in common with Birger Kaipiainen, who designed the timeless classic Paratiisi while suffering from polio.
