Spotlight on crafts 6.11.2015

Posti's Crafts is a miniature sheet with the aim of increasing the public appreciation of crafts. Crafts pass on traditions, give pleasure, is a popular subject at school, and provide a livelihood to many. The sheet is the result of a proposal submitted to Posti by the Finnish Crafts Organization Taito ry, the Association of Craft Teachers TOL ry and the Association of Technology Teachers TAO ry. The miniature sheet is designed by Aamu Song and Johan Olin, who together make up the artist partnership COMPANY.
The stamps depict products made from many different materials, representing both traditional and new crafting techniques and a more industrial way of working. The featured craft products are Rose socks and Grandmother's Squareby Tuula KunnasBirch bark handbag by Auli Vasara, as well as Dancing Shoes and Porcini Stool by COMPANY. The spaces between the stamps on the sheet are filled with drawings that illustrate different crafting techniques.

Thank you Ella for this fine FDC.
