Medieval Handicraft

I'll take this one


Månvind Pottery



I met a few talented people at the Viking/Medieval Festival. This is one of them. Lena Granberg from Tungelsta. She is the woman to the left. She is an artist and a potter. Her handicraft is based on Middle Age and Viking Age findings. She has her own business called Månvind (Moon Wind) where you can order your Christmas gifts! Lena uses modern techniques but tries to keep the design as close to the originals as possible. To see more Viking/Medieval photos check out the slideshow where you can also see last years snaps.

Kind of like our renaissance festivals in the US but more real...nice! Do people miss those days?

It's interesting how people all over get into this medieval re- enactment movement and they all seem to look the same! These pics could have been taken in Canada!
Great glazes.

Hmmm. I'm not really into medieval times, but I know someone who is and I've sent her a link to your blog. I'm sure she'll love the photos :-)
