Straw mobile "Himmeli"
"Himmeli" is a traditional Finnish decoration made by connecting straw with threads. In addition to Christmas decorations, it has been displayed as a talisman for abundant crops and happiness. Its simple yet sophisticated design is beginning to attract attention in Japan as one of the Scandinavian arts.
I was impressed by the golden wheat field and came across "Himmeli" when I was wondering if I could make something with straw to convey this beauty. I enjoyed making Himmeli with my friends for a while, but in the fall of 2014, Ezura Farm played a central role in launching "Himmeli no Kai aurinko". After that, people who agreed with my thoughts joined the group, and the number of members became about 10.
aurinko means the sun in Finnish. Himmeli made from wheat grown under the sky is continuing its activities so that it can one day illuminate the local area.
