Melissa Sammalvaara / Winter Moments
Melissa Sammalvaara’s Talven hetkiä (Winter Moments) exhibition features exuberant and colourful nature-themed rya rugs. The exhibition invites you to stop and experience nature. The ryas are a collection of inspiration from the various phases of winter, its beginning and its end. Sammalvaara makes her ryas mostly from recycled materials, employing various techniques. The works convey the joy of insight and silent interaction with the world around us.
