iittala Aalto Ultramarine Blue Vase - 6-1/4"
The new iittala color called "Ultramarine" is vivid and alluring; a stand-out hue that works in any space year-round but is especially perfect for welcoming spring into your home. Flowers will bunch beautifully in the iittala Aalto 6-1/4" Vase, but its purpose far surpasses floral arrangements. Designer Alvar Aalto wanted to let the end user decide its use, whether that be to hold the paintbrushes of an artist or the marbles of an avid collector. Its mysterious shape has been the subject of much speculation; some say it is based on Aalto's sketches entitled, "The Eskimo Woman's Leather Breeches." Others speculate that the fluid shape might be inspired by the lines of the lake-rich Finnish landscape. Regardless of its questionable origins, one thing remains indisputable: its timeless beauty. It takes 7 craftsmen, 12 work stages and 30 hours to create just one of these extraordinary mouth-blown vases.
