Iittala Ultima Thule Footed Cordials by Tapio Wirkkala, Finland

25 Feb

iitala shot glasses 1


These are 2 1/2″ footed cordials made by IIttala, Finland in the Ultima Thule pattern, designed by Tapio Wirkkala.   They date to the 1960’s.

I found the following information about the designer on Iittala.com

Tapio Wirkkala 1968

Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, Wirkkala originally created the surface in the 1960s after carving into a graphic mould. An 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 of the wooden moulds.
