Living Art: Finnish Holiday Ornaments

Justine Hand December 04, 2013

From the Finnish word for sky or heaven, himmeli have long been used to celebrate the beginning of Winter Solstice, as well as to bestow good wishes for the future. 

This season, we’ve been admiring a modern take on this Scandinavian holiday classic: brass himmelis by Hruskaa. As much sculpture as planter, a golden prism provides a bit of holiday sparkle all year long.

Above: Hand crafted from brass straws and cord, each of this Set of Three Himmeli, Prism No. 1 is perfectly sized to hold a tillandsia; $60. Also sold individually at Hruskaa; $25.

Above: A different set of simple geometric mobiles is also sold as a Set of Three Himmeli; $49, or individually (L to R): No. 3, No. 1, and No. 2; $19 each.

Above: Viewed from the bottom, this larger Brasss Himmeli Prism No. 2 measures 7.5 inches by 10.75 inches; $49.

Above: Hruskaa’s himmeli are also available as a Set of 2 Wall Planters; $70. Also sold individually; $35.

Above: Hruskaa’s mid-century style wreath is adorned with just a small bit of greenery for the holidays; Large Brass Himmeli Wreath; $185.
