iittala claritas glass vase - ring of trajanus

Design Timo Sarpaneva, 1983
Hand blown art glass
Made in Finland by iittala

Every Claritas piece is a unique work of art. Air bubbles, layers of colored glass and shapes are taken to their extremes, demanding intimate knowledge of the glass material from the glass blowers and polishers. With all the unattainable colors that Sarpaneva could only dream of in the 1980s, Claritas objects are now glowing in majestic forms.

Designer and sculptor Timo Sarpaneva was an internationally known force in Finnish design. It was written that this master of many materials had "a rare ability to be mesmerized and to worship beauty". Sarpaneva's works are exhibited in homes and museums around the world. His designs extend from utility glassware and art glass to textiles and graphics. Sarpaneva actually designed Iittala's "i" logo, which serves as the symbol of the company.

Claritas art pieces are offered in your choice of eight various colors, forms and sizes.

Timo Sarpaneva

Finnish design Timo Sarpaneva was best known in the art world for innovative work in glass, which often merged attributes of display art objects with utilitarian designations. While glass remained his most commonly addressed medium, he worked with metal, wood, textiles, and porcelain. Sarpaneva has entered homes around the world through his upscale, artistically conceived items, including cast-iron cookware and porcelain dinnerware. His work was among the key components that helped to launch Finland's reputation as a trailblazer of design.
What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, now celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. Iittala believes objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that allows for individual use and expression. The progressive philosophy of design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires to keep Iittala forever relevant. Iittala creates beautiful objects... timeless design that will never be thrown away.
