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. clear/white: 9.8" h.
