Named for the Finnish word for diamond or square, the form is deceptively simple as its strict geometry pushes the limits of its material. While lava-like liquid glass flows easily into round, organic shapes, it resists the precision of the square. The delicate colors also pose a challenge, requiring expert knowledge of glass-mass chemistry and careful attention to the exact temperature of the material and timing of production. Each vase is an artisan masterpiece that takes seven craftsmen 24 hours to produce in the storied Iittala glass factory. Hand wash.
