The names of Gunnel Nyman’s designs – Helminauha, Huntu, Ruusunlehti, Ovaali, Serpentiini, and many others – speak of a world of beauty and sensitive attention to detail and form. The plasticity of the thick glass she used, its sculptural qualities, harmony, delicate balance of light and proportion, and sheer intensity have rarely, if ever, been matched by any other designer in Finland.
