iittala Ultima Thule 1.5 Qt. Ice Lip Pitcher

Legend has it that Ultima Thule was a far northern island buried in ice and snow, where the sun never set. Two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks thought it was the edge of the world. Ultima Thule also has a deeper meaning; the extreme limits and capabilities of humankind, the ability to achieve the unattainable. Determined and continued experimentation with glassblowing techniques created Ultima Thule's unusual organic effect. The form gradually changes as molten glass burns the surface of the wooden moulds, crystallizing a particularly Finnish expression of glass in an eternal design classic. The Ice Lip pitcher features a lip specifically designed to catch ice and keep it in the pitcher.

classic piece

Heidi from Canada

I bought this as a gift and the recipient was very happy, she is familiar with the brand, however.

I was very pleased with how well it was packaged. The fine glass was in one piece.

His work ranges from exceptional creations of art glass to industrial design in the form of beer bottles and banknotes. Wirkkala also designed jewelery, sculptures and furniture.
