We believe in the power of art and want to give you a chance to enjoy it from home as well. Rut Bryk: Touch of a Butterfly is a warm portrayal of the artist completed in 2019, and it's now available for viewing on here, on EMMA's website.

Rut Bryk (1916–1999) was a pioneer in modern ceramic art. She left an extensive production of sensitive ceramic works for future generations, but no words to explain them. In the intimate documentary, experts on the artist and her immediate circle convey an image of Rut Bryk as a person at home in both global metropolises as well as the middle of Lapland’s wilderness.
