Tapio Wirkkala: Ultima Thule Footed Dessert Bowl, Set of 2
Flickering candlelight will be even more enchanting behind the clear glass of this votive. In modern literature, Ultima Thule is used to reference the furthest possible place in the world. Tapio Wirkkala’s 1968 Ultima Thule glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinaiva and the distinct expressive power of Finnish glass. This beautiful texture is achieved through a time-laboring technique, in which the molten glass burns the surface of the wooden molds.
