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 three different items of this series now for sale: The Main building, the Sauna and the Shed.
The poem on the backside of this Sauna wall plate describes a relaxed feeling in the summer sauna at the lake: "... vihdan tuoksu löylyn lempeä syli järven pienessä poukamassa suvisessa saunassanikesän kaipuuni kohtaan."
These were in production in the 90s at Arabia. In the last picture all three wall plates are pictured together.
