Kerttu Nurminen (1943- ) designed in glass at Nuutajärvi and in ceramics for Arabia. These "Runon mailla" (-'at the lands of poetry') Wall Plates represent nostalgic views from the Finnish countryside, and each of them have a short poem in Finnish written on the back.
We have the three different items of this series now for sale: The Main building, the Sauna and the Shed.
The poem on the backside of this Main building -wall plate dribbles with the thought of who could be living in this house: "... pappi, lukkari, talonpoika kuppari, rikas, rakas, missä asuu kylän paras..."
These were in production in the 90s at Arabia. In the last picture all three wall plates are pictured together.
