DESCRIPTION:
A massive and very rare Tapio Wirkkala glass platter for Iittala. Once again, nature is Wirkkala's inspiration with this piece. The inside surface of this design gives way to the underlying pattern, and as well as providing the visual design, also provides a pedestal for it and allows it to "float" above the surface. The inside surface is smooth as opposed to the bottom surface which is has the molded texture. The sheer size of this piece is impressive, let alone the amazing pattern that Wirkkala created. This would be the centerpiece to any glass collection.
