This Kastehelmi votive is part of Iittala’s Finland 100 collection that celebrates the centenary of Finland’s independence. The ultramarine blue glass objects are available only in 2017.
In 1964 Oiva Toikka’s aim was to design a pattern that would conceal the joint marks in pressed glass. The result was Kastehelmi, Finnish for dewdrop, that features delicate glass droplets arranged in a series of rings. Kastehelmi became one of Toikka’s most beloved series of glassware and it was manufactured until 1988. The most popular items were brought back to Iittala’s production in 2010. Kastehelmi plays with light in the most beautiful way and suits any table setting.
