Description

Legend Tapio Wirkkala’s greatest inspiration came from his native Finland. With his iconic Ultima Thule, the artist defied the rules of glassblowing. Inspired by an ice-covered Finnish island, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature. Characterised by a rounded base supported by three ice peaks that float above the surface, the groundbreaking Ultima Thule collection brings a piece of arctic nature into any interior. A dynamic mix of art and function, the Ultima Thule Old Fashioned set includes two mouthblown glasses and an elegant pitcher. Perfect for serving spirits. Rain adds stunning detail.

  • Hand wash only

     

    Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, Wirkkala originally created the surface in the 1960s after carving into a graphic mold. An exclusive design reflecting the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce the effect. The patterns gradually change as the glass burns the surface of the wooden molds.
