Malin Winberg

Born: 1978
Place of Birth: Finland

Malin graduated with a BA (Hons) in Silversmithing and Jewellery from the Glasgow School of Art in 2010. Originally from Finland, Malin Winberg’s work is heavily influenced by the stories and characters of the 19th century Finnish folklore epic ‘the Kalevala’. Malin has taken as her inspiration the organic forms and textures found in the Finnish forests and woodlands where many of the folklore stories take place. Using a variety of techniques such as raising, forging and chasing she describes her pieces as ‘each a journey of light, shadow and line’.
