Multi-talented genius Tapio Wirkkala was considered the pioneer of modern Finnish industrial art. Wirkkala defied the rules of glassblowing with his iconic Ultima Thule collection. Inspired by ice and snow, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature. Featuring a rounded base supported by three ice peaks that float above the surface, the groundbreaking Ultima Thule brings a piece of arctic nature into any interior. The striking design of the clear Ultima Thule tealight candleholder adds a soft glow that creates warm ambience. Stunning alone or grouped in a collection. A perfect gift.

The experience shopping with Touch of Finland was awesome. The Ittala votives are beautiful and match a bowl I purchased several years ago. Thank you for shipping them so rapidly so we can enjoy on Christmas.
So glad these are back!!! Just as beautiful as my grandmother's.
