By Iittala of Finland
Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, Tapio Wirkkala originally created the surface of Ultima Thule in the 1960s after carving into a graphic mould. An exclusive design reflecting the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce the effect. These come in clear, smoke grey, and rain blue.
THE PERFECT ACCENT
Use them as a centrepiece on your dining table, or mantelpiece, or just to dial up the ambiance in your lounge on a weeknight for night for no real reason. Three or more scattered around a room at different heights creates a stunning effect.
We also sell clear walled tealights which maximise brightness in votives, as the light comes out from all directions.
ABOUT THE MAKER
