Iittala Kastehelmi Votive 64mm: Emerald
Iittala Kastehelmi Votive - Emerald
Design By Oiva Toikka
The Kastehelmi series has been a favourite in the Iittala glass collection for over fifty years. Designed in 1964 by Oiva Toikka, the idea of using droplets of glass was originally devised as a way of concealing joint marks left in the glass as a side effect of the production process. The resulting circles of tiny glass bubbles served to enhance the optical quality of the glass and give each piece its unique quality.
