Poppius-masks

POPPIUS-MASKS NOW AVAILABLE FROM TEATTERI METAMORFOOSI

 

Teatteri Metamorfoosi started 2013 re-production of masks, designed by Finnish mask maker pioneer, Antero Poppius (1922-2005). Poppius-masks are hand-crafted high quality theatre masks, designed for demands of professional use.  

 

Poppius-masks are ideal for the use of performers and pedagogues who are interested in speechless storytelling and body expression.

Poppius-masks are very expressive and humorous in the rough Finnish way. There is something very true and regognisable with these caracters. They work very well with all kind of age groups, various professional or amateur backgrounds and different audiences.

 

See the photo gallery of available mask models. 

The gallery is updated as we get new models done.

 

ANTERO POPPIUS (1922-2005)

Finnish mask maker pioneer Antero Poppius created a collection of 80 masks, alongside of his full-time work as an handcraft teacher in the elementary school.

His most popular masks are the serie of some 20 grotesque whole masks. He designed also expressionless masks, half masks and animal masks.


MATERIAL

Inspired by the toy industry, Antero Poppius started using natural latex based liquid in mask making and developed his own secret receip during many years. Unfortunately the original material of Poppius-masks was not very long-lasting.

Teatteri Metamorfoosi's new production of the Poppius-masks are made now with industrial latex called neoprene, which makes the masks very durable, but still confortable.

 

PRICES OF THE MASKS 

250€ / one mask

When you buy five masks or more, you will get a good discount.

For example a serie of 10 masks costs 1700€
