Swedish Luffaslojd

Here is a less common form of folk art I recently learned about. Its called Swedish Luffaslojd. Its wire art and pretty cool stuff.

Its a simple art form of bending wire into useful or decorative objects. We often tend to forget that in days past people were not so quick to dispose of items or materials. Life was not so easy and make do was the catch phrase of the day.

Here is an interesting blog, showing some luffaslojd work. Use Google or Bing to translate and you will find some more information about it. There is also this from Wikipedia. (Note: Luffaslojd can be translated as Tramp. )

"Tramp also called wire crafts, wire work or trådtjack is a term for a form of metalwork in which the various dimensions of the metal wires are bent, bent, twisted and lashed together into various items such as bread Naggar, baskets, candlesticks, bowls, whisks, and more.

Handicraft The species gets its name from the days when many so-called tramp wandering around and sold the items that they made ​​with the help of some simple pliers and wire mesh.

Today there will tramp often in school subject crafts as annealed iron wire is a relatively easily worked and cheap material designed to develop students' understanding of metals formability and shape possibilities."
Scandinavian Flat Plane Carving

The premise is simple get a block of carving wood, trace out a rough pattern and use a sharp knife to carve the pattern.  I have been working at learning this form of folk art for the past couple of years. I have a long way to go. Faces and particularly eyes are what bring the carvings to life. I was surprised that this was not as easy as it sounds or when watching a master carver do it.  

I participate in a weekly carving class taught at the American - Swedish Institute in Minneapolis. We benefit from having a master carver teaching and helping us as well as great community of people learning the art form.

About the sharp knife, you need band-aids to go with it. They should come as a kit. Here are a couple of samples of some of my early carvings. I hope I can improve.
