Aalto integrated the natural contours of the Finnish landscape into his free-form vase series. The Finlandia Vase, a new edition based on the original Aalto Vase which is in the Museum's collection and was introduced at the 1936 Paris World's Fair. It is taller and narrower than the classic Aalto vase, and allows for easy flower arranging. Each piece is mouth-blown of lead-free crystal into a mold and hand polished. Made by Iittala.
