Nearly every summer we spend time in Orivesi, in the southern part of Finland. As we drove around outside town, through a quiet dark forest, I was looking for inspiration. It doesn’t always make itself so obvious, but there was a steady clanging sound, piercing the otherwise silent scenery. I followed the noise and came upon a hole in the ground. Inside this huge hole, there were men working, as small and busy as carpenter ants from my perch. This is how I found my next project: The Quarrymen.
