krumkake iron

krumkake iron

Description:

A Norwegian/Scandinavian krumkake iron with metal iron handles that was used by Teresa Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. The krumkake iron was used to make traditional krumkake cookies during Christmas time as a Norway tradition. The insides of the two plates of the iron has a flower folk art-like pattern. Folk art encompasses art produced from an indigenous culture or by peasants or other laboring tradespeople. In contrast to fine art, folk art is primarily utilitarian and decorative rather than purely aesthetic. It is characterized by a naïve style, in which traditional rules of proportion and perspective are not employed. Folk art mainly expresses cultural identity, such as sharing community values, by using various materials of wood, clay, metal, paper, and other resources. It reflects traditional art forms of diverse community groups of ethnic, tribal, religious, occupational, geographical, age- or gender-based, who identify with each other and society at large. On both plates on the outside reads "Made In Norway". For donor biography see description for 021.10.01.
