Moomin winter season bowl 2018, Light Snowfall, features Moomintroll from the book Moominland Midwinter. Light Snowfall shows the moment when Moomintroll experiences his first snowfall.
This gentle blue product is different to the previous seasonal Moomin products by Arabia. The main color is blue, which depicts the cold of winter. Tove Jansson’s original drawing was made with a scraping technique, which is why the picture on the dishes had to be kept simple, using only a few colors. These illustrations have been done by ceramic artist Tove Slotte. She used Tove Jansson’s original black and white drawings as a basis for her work.
Describing the snow was one of Tove Jansson’s most impressive skills. The original “Moominland Midwinter” illustrations and descriptions of snow and snowing are based on dozens of Finnish and Swedish synonyms for snow. The childlike Moomins, usually hibernating, were a way to explain the author’s first magical experience of snow.
