    An exhibition is presenting an in-depth look into the extensive career of Rut Bryk (1916–1999) who was one of the central figures in Finnish post-war art and design. With her works that convey incredible powerful emotion and intense sensitivity, she was a reformer of modern ceramic art. Her early colourful narrative works were followed by a period monumental works with a strong sense of spatiality and close kinship with architecture.
