Bjorn Weckstrom 1935

Bjorn Weckstrom was born in 1935. At a very young age Bjorn discovered that he enjoyed the form of clay; the way in which he could mold and shape the clay, and the connection between one's self and the form. Bjorn longed to be a sculptor, but at the age of 16 was told that he must go to the Goldsmith's school. Being so young, he went, and graduated in 1956. Following his graduation Bjorn took a loan from his family to buy his first workshop in Helsinki, and set to work making bold clean forms in jewelry.
