Kim Simonsson’s life-size, ceramic Moss People sculptures depict innocent yet beguiling children, leading the viewer into an imaginative, fairytale world inspired by the forests of Finland. “The name Moss People refers to the children’s innate camouflage,” explains Simonsson. “The moss green figures blend perfectly into their natural surroundings, just as a soft carpet of moss covers the ground, rocks, and tree trunks and acts as a sort of protection. In the Moss People world, lost and disconnected children gather in a shaman party, choose leaders, and end up creating false idols.”

Simonsson is a Finnish ceramic sculptor who lives and works in Fiskars. He graduated in 2000 from the University of Arts & Design with an MA in Ceramics. He is known for working clay with great sensitivity.
