Motives on the Moomin summer season series 2017 are from Tove Jansson’s Moomin book “Moominsummer Madness”. Summer mug and plate feature the characters Moomintroll, Moominpappa, Little My and Snorkmaiden together with the lion. The designs are based on Tove Jansson’s original artwork which Tove Slotte has interpreted in these dishes.
This year, Arabia’s summer seasonals feature the Moomins at the summer theatre. The Moomins are forced to leave their own house because Moominvalley is flooded. They save themselves by getting into another peculiar house that floats by in the floodwaters. The Moomins are not aware that the house is a summer theatre. Arabia’s ceramics are illustrated with Tove Jansson’s tale ‘Moominsummer Madness’, first published in 1954. The story is not just about midsummer celebrations, but also explores how each of us plays a certain role in life – whether we want to or not.
