June 12nd - September 30th 2011
Juminkeko invited Finnish artisan blacksmiths to the exhibition on the Kalevala theme. Works from 14 artisans were accepted.
The works are representing versatile skills of the blacksmiths. There are sculptures, mini sculptures, jewels, reliefs and installations included. The Kalevala has inspired the blacksmiths to create works with many different styles and some of them also funny ones.
