Ultima Thule Centerpiece Bowl/Platter
Designer Tapio Wirkkala, 1968
Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, Wirkkala originally created the surface in the 1960’s after carving into a graphic mold. And exclusive design reflecting the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce the effect. The patterns gradually change as the glass burns the surface fo the wooden molds.
