OIVA TOIKKA TUNTURISSA KULHO RUSKA - 1987.The series that it hails from is called Tunturissa which refers to the landscape that we might call "Arctic tundra". The decor on this vase is called Ruska - an autumn colour variant. The bowl or 'kulho' is 9 cm high and weighs just 265 grammes. It is blown and moulded glass. For us 'down under' this is the beginning of autumn. So this is an attempt at an Antipodean Easter Autumn Greeting. Happy Easter!
