Tapio Wirkkala - Feather vase

€595.00

Tapio Wirkkala designed in a wide range of different materials. He said that materials have their own rules that dictate the artistic process. He often made the prototype of his creation by himself. He said that his task as an artist was to free the inner potential of each material.  
Nature apparently was a very important source of inspiration for Wirkkala. He spent a lot of time at his cottage in Lapland observing nature and water and ice through different times of the year.

The Feather vase is a typical example of a Wirkkala creation that is inspired by nature. There are several creations by Wirkkala with variations of this same  theme, but in the Feather vase the resemblance to an actual feather is particularly strong.

Mold-blown crystal, comb-cut front and smooth back surface.
There are small light line reflexions in the smooth part of the vase.
