Multi-talented genius Tapio 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 a 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 to any interior. A dynamic mix of art and function, the classic Finnish glassware cemented its iconic status when Finnair began using it in its first class service from Helsinki to New York. The Ultima Thule goblet is versatile enough for wine or water.

It’s a beautiful goblet! But unfortunately I wanted it to be a full 12oz glass, and it’s not. If you fill it to the very top it’s 10 oz! I would think that ounces would be the same no matter where it’s made. But when I called Touch of Finland I was told that their distributor confirmed it was 12 oz. If anyone wants to prove me wrong, go for it. Open a 12 oz can of beer, and pour it into that goblet, if it fits I’ll eat my hat! Lol!
