Aalto Vase

aalto-vase

The word aalto is Finnish for ‘wave,’ and Aalto captured the eternal wave in his classic series of vases. This version is a reintroduction of the original green-tinged clear color. Included in the MoMA collection, this famous undulating vase is an icon of modern design. With sensual and flowing forms, they appear to mimic the water they hold. It takes a team of seven skilled craftsmen to create one Aalto vase. Each lead-free crystal piece is mouth-blown into a mold and hand-polished.” w/ photos
