Description

My Island glass sculpture by Jorma Vennola depicts a tiny Finnish island retreat with everything needed: a cabin, a boat shelter, and a sauna. The moulded glass object makes an attractive decoration on a table or by the window, and can also be used as a paperweight or given as a gift for a sea lover. It has been manufactured by the Finnish company Muotohuone, and 5 euros of the proceeds will go directly to the Unique Archipelago Sea operation.

Finnish Design Shop’s Archipelago Sea collection resulted from an initiative of the Unique Archipelago Sea (Ainutlaatuinen Saaristomeri) operation. Well-known Finnish designers have contributed to this unique collection aimed at protecting Finland’s Archipelago Sea. Consisting of more than 41,000 islands, the Archipelago Sea is one of the richest natural areas in Finland in terms of biodiversity, but continuous eutrophication is a serious threat to its future. Part of the collection's proceeds will be directed to a program for recycling nutrients in the Archipelago Sea. All products are handmade in Finland and only available at Finnish Design Shop.
