iittala Ultima Thule Pitcher


This is certainly one of our most prized possessions in our home. We love having it on the table with sparkling water, elderflower spritzers and sometimes we use it as the most beautiful vase.

Multi-talented genius Tapio Wirkkala was considered the pioneer of modern Finnish industrial art. Internationally recognized for his glass designs, Wirkkala’s greatest inspiration always came from his native Finland. Wirkkala defied the rules of glassblowing with his iconic Ultima Thule collection.

Inspired by ice and snow, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature. Featuring a rounded base supported by three ice peaks that float above the surface, the groundbreaking Ultima Thule brings a piece of arctic nature into any interior.

The elegant Ultima Thule pitcher was designed to commemorate Wirkkala’s 100th birthday. Perfect for serving cold drinks..

These are just one of those items that you need to use before you can really appreciate how special they are. They feel beautiful in your hand, they look spectacular & they are something you will cherish for decades!
