1 review of Hiekka Art Museum

Hiekka Art Museum

Hiekka Kustaa was born in 1855 in Laitila, where he spent his childhood. He moved from Laitila at the age of fourteen to serve his apprenticeship in the workshop of Holm, a goldsmith in Uusikaupunki. He took his apprentice exam in 1875 and mastered it only a few years later, in 1878. Hiekka Kustaa opened his first jewelry store in Pori, in 1878, and the next year he moved to to Tampere, where he settled and lived until his death in 1937. In 1879 he married Karolina Henrika Arenius, widow of a goldsmith. The museum today offers a glimpse into the life and works of this interesting man.
