Multi-talented genius Tapio Wirkkala was considered the pioneer of modern Finnish industrial art. 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. Featuring a round 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. The Ultima Thule beer glass is a dynamic combination of art and function.

This item exceeded all of my expectations. It excels for formal dinner date night. Then transitions right to Movie Night filled to the top with ice and soda pop for refreshment.
As seen on Enterprise episode Proving Ground. We received this as a wonderful Christmas gift. We use it whenever we watch movies 🎥. As is it holds a lot of ice 🧊 & beverage to imbibe
Big enough for my thirsty milk-drinking husband; sturdy enough to not worry about it breaking; beautiful enough for friends to comment on its design—
Love them, should have ordered one more but don’t want to pay shipping, so sad
