Iittala’s hand blown Ruutu vases

I have an item on my wish list, it’s been there for about 20 years now – and I’m not sure I’ll ever… like Ever… be able to afford it. The original handblown Alvar Aalto vase – ohh and I want the tree trunk mould it was gracefully and skilfully handblown into… just one of those things that maybe very few would appreciate – but to me it is a piece of art, unique and beautiful.

Looks like I’ll have to put a few items next to Aalto on the list… The Bouroullec brothers have once again done a little of their magic – and created the Ruutu vases… with Iittala of course, check what’s involved in creating these beauties and I’m sure you’ll appreciate them too.

U-Ram Choe

Once in a while I come across a writer, musician, creator, designer or artist who seems to have sneaky peeked inside my head – taken careful notes… and then created things that would fit beautifully right back in.

U-Ram Choe makes beautiful and inspiring objects, hope that maybe, some day, I will be able to grace my life with more than just images of his work.
