The Christmas Tales series is a series of evocative, ceramic figures directly inspired by Nordic nature and made in Kähler’s famous handmade quality. With Christmas Tales, you get a Christmas collection that brings Christmas joy and ambiance at this special and magical time. The Christmas Tales series has been created in collaboration with ceramic designer Thora Finnsdottir, who has breathed new life into pine cones, trees stumps and mushrooms you find on the forest bed, bringing the feel of the winter forest all the way into your home.
In short, Christmas Tales presents a world of Christmas magic interpreted through ceramics. Each ceramic Christmas story by Thora Finnsdottir carries a Christmas message and reflects her experimental and exploratory approach to form and narrative, which draws on Kähler’s artistic legacy and handmade design tradition.
The figurines are made of white-glazed ceramic, while the environment around them uses different coloured glazes in natural and Nordic shades. Nature’s structures and shapes have been recreated through direct castings of mushrooms, pine cones and tree stumps, which Finnsdottir has given new life through ceramics.
The Christmas figurines from Christmas Tales make the perfect gift idea. And just like we send Christmas cards with personal greetings, so too we can delight our loved ones with a decorative figure to remind us to stop and enjoy Christmas and each other.
