I thought it was time I shared a few photo’s of the Artist in Residence studio here at Fiskars – in the basement of the apartment. It is sparsely appointed, but I’ve got it looking productively messy, and the school’s etching press that happens to be being stored in the back room at the moment is getting a workout. Finally a look back out the door and down the hill, past the SIWA (small grocery store) and to the new carpark. From my desk I can watch the constant too-ing and fro-ing of locals going to SIWA, and the tourists and visitors crossing the market from their cars to the craft shops and galleries. For a town with 600 residents it manages to feel quite busy.
