Material: Pressed Glass Dimensions: 6.75" x .68" The Finnish name dewdrop refers to the circles of bubbles in the pressed glass. Inspired by Finnish nature, the dewdrops glisten like a string of pearls on grass in the morning sun. Oiva Toikkas love for experimentation led to the creation of an entirely new droplet design for Kastehelmi. The resulting surface structure brings out the living, reflective beauty of the glass. Professor Oiva Toikka is one of the most renowned names in Finnish glass art. His style deviates from the streamlined aesthetic of Scandinavian design in imaginative, rich and bold ways, earning him international praise. He has won some of the most prestigious design awards in the world, including the Lunning Prize, Pro Finlandia Medal, World Glass Now 85 Award, Kaj Franck Design Prize and the Prince Eugen Medal.
