Design pioneer Alvar Aalto took inspiration from the natural beauty of his native Finland to create the iconic asymmetrical waves ("aalto" in Finnish) that have become his creative signature from architecture to glass. A globally recognized symbol of timeless Scandinavian interior design, each unique Aalto vase is mouthblown, hand cut and then polished several times at the Iittala glass factory. Clear glass is a versatile, striking addition to any home interior. The Aalto vase's new size is ideal for showcasing long-stemmed flowers. Makes a perfect gift.
