TOBBE MALM - sculptor in the metal

(6 votes)

     TOBBE MALM is a blacksmith artist born in the former iron mining town of NORBERG, SWEDEN, in 1960. Generations of mining shaped the lives and minds of the inhabitants. Explosions in the mine tunnels far below the streets of NORBERG shook the town day and night. The iron ore was boiled in a blast furnace, the smoke from the huge chimney perpetually licking the sky. MALM cites this presence of heavy industry throughout his childhood as an influence on his work. The constancy of birth and rebirth of substance fascinated him.

     As a child he tinkered with a wide range of materials assisted by his father, a keen silversmith in his spare time. MALMS work is characterised by explorations into this subject of returning.

     In 2008, he moved his life and workshop to BÆRUMS VERK artist village in OSLO, NORWAY (i.s.).
