MAGIC ISLANDS – JOHN NURMINEN FOUNDATION
Magic Island ceramic art pieces are on display at KWUM’s summer exhibition 14.5.–30.9. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the John Nurminen Foundation’s mission to save the Baltic Sea and its heritage for future generations.
Ceramic artist Karin Widnäs and John Nurminen Foundation’s collaboration is inspired by the Baltic Sea, as they share a common desire to save the Baltic Sea. With their cooperation, they want to instill hope that arises from concrete actions and the opportunity to participate in rescue work. It’s not too late.
Karin Widnäs has made ceramic wish boxes using the raku technique, which consist of a box and an island resting on top of it, which embodies the gentle roughness of the rock. Magic Island boxes are on sale at Karin Widnäs gallery, KWUM, Fiskars. Wish boxes come in different sizes and three different surfaces representing the seasons. You can find first snow, spring and summer in the colors.
KWUM means dream in Korean – at Fiskars it means the Karin Widnäs museum. At the gallery’s summer exhibition on 14.5. – On September 31, 2023, Karin Widnäs’ Magic Island works, which promote the Baltic Sea rescue work, are on display and for sale.
